An Audio Production Summer Camp for the Musically Inclined

Nello Player

A six-week audio tune program for budding artists and musicians will commence next week Monday at the Department of Youth Services on Regent Street. The program is primarily targeting persons between the ages of fifteen and twenty-five that have that interest in tapping into the local music industry. The idea is to offer a concentrated course on how to create a song from start to finish—from songwriting to beat creation, recording and putting out a final product.


Nello Player, Artist Program Organizer

“How this came about is that I find myself often mentoring, if you will, or assisting young musicians and artists and even go as far as recording them and recording music for them and I thought that it would be good to have a platform to teach a number of them, who have the interests and, as you’ve said, don’t have the resources to do so. And the Youth Department has created a new space for musicians, a studio area and that is where the program is going to take place and it’s from nine o’clock to twelve o’clock from Monday to Thursday. It’s a very hands-on, interactive program where every week I will be inviting a guest instructor to assist and to liven up things and to give another perspective other than what I know.”


Duane Moody

“How does this add to you as an artist, taking the knowledge that you’ve garnered over your years of performing and all of that and imparting that knowledge to them? How does it help with you and where you see Nello Player as an artist, as a producer, as a songwriter and all of that?”

“Well maybe this is a glimpse or a sneak peek into what’s to come in the future, but it is fulfilling, it is gratifying that I can pass on the little that I know to somebody in a basic manner that is very comprehensive and they could understand everything. That they can touch, the computer and touch the keyboard and say, see this is what happens when you do that. So I feel good passing this one because I wasn’t formally taught this so it is the same thing I am passing on.”


The program goes for six weeks starting on Monday. To register, you can contact Shawn Saldano at the Department of Youth Services or you can call 651-1411 for more info. The first fifteen will be accepted into the program.
