The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Public Library is currently taking applications for its new teen Music Maker Space program at the Lee Road Library. The eight-week music production program, scheduled for fall 2017, has room for three paid teen interns and 12 teen program participants. The interns will help mentor the other teens in the use of music production software and equipment, as they learn sound- and music-related skills, including recording, mixing, editing and producing.
Applicants must be between the ages of 13 and 18, live in Cleveland Heights or University Heights, and be able to commit four hours a week to the program. The interns will be paid $500 each.
Applications for both the internships and the regular program have now closed but please check back with us in the winter.
