Our *Free* non-profit audio school for kids is only 1 month away!

After 6 years looking for sponsors and trying to get endorced by the state we finally made some headway this year. Apple donated 10 iPads so we could set up audio and video workstations and the state has given us a few hundred to purchase tables and other assorted items.

We didn’t get the money we needed but thanks to a few companies throwing us a few items here and there we might actually get this thing off the ground.

We will be taking in young adults “14-17” that’s have had a tiny bit of trouble with the law. I guess you could say they get sentenced to us.

Me and my wife have been doing this for quiet some time with our own funds but we thought we might try getting a little help. We do still need equipment but I am sure it will come in time.

We have been promoting the school through our live Facebook music review contest every Wednesday at 9pm est. Facebook/bobsandifer
Special thanks to Sweetwater, SSL, Sparkle App and Apple for helping us get started.

I do have a few items in the classisifieds that will go towards some used gear for the school. Mics, interfaces etc. we are crazy excited about this.

Well. Lost every bit of our funding thanks to our new governor. Gofundme didn’t work nor did the Facebook fundraiser.....
Back to me and my wife covering the expenses. Thank goodness we are in a position to do it.

Atlanta? Huge!!
Every genre and its moving out of the city. We are in griffin ga and my facility stays busy about 20 hours per day. We basically shut down to run backup and clean. Well. Almost all of my work comes from the net but a huge amount still comes in from Atlanta.
