Soundtrack Academy is a program that uses music production to teach youth and adults how to build confidence, self-esteem and resilience while learning skills to create professional sounding music. Classes and workshops are led by Soundtracks to Life’s Founder and Music Producer D’Angelo “Taylor Famous” along with music engineers and industry professionals.
