AMP Up! encourages Baltimore Creatives 16-24 years old to create origional songs and new works. The creative process begins with writing workshops led by mentors. Professionals in the field give feedback and pro tips on the creative and song writing process. Spring mentors include artist producer, songwriter, DJ Von Vargas, singer, songwriter Sahffi, and music producer and television sound engineer Winston Philip.
Using feedback to refine the work, participants also have the opportunity to record each other's songs in a professional studio, Freestyle Media in Motor House Baltimore. Lessons on networking, music licensing, and royalties are included in this mentorship program.
The program culminates in a listening party to share new works and discuss the creative journey. There are also paid opportunities to present origional works both live and recorded.
