Hip Hop & Beat Making
Course 21: Employment Training Bootcamp II

Congratulations on making it to the end of the program! By now, you are probably excited to apply what you have learned and start your next adventure. Whether that be joining an existing studio team or even starting up your own studio business, this last week offers an important opportunity to get reconnected with the studio space you have been learning in.

Along with your mentor, take a few moments to cover some basics such as maintenance and cleaning. Having a refresher on these practices will set you up for success no matter the future direction you decide to take. You’ll learn how to schedule and set up big events (think Battle of the Bands), work with local schools, and different ways to utilize the space.

You’ll also take a final exam that encompasses all of the past courses. Take time to go back through your past course section reviews–they are very helpful study tools. The Final Exam contains questions from ALL past courses, so be sure to review everything you can. Your Academic Facilitator will help you set yourself up for a good and hopefully relatively stressless exam experience.

You’ll visit Genelec as part of your digital field trip and take a look at their state-of-the-art monitors. For your Listening Library, you’ll listen to Lindsey Buckingham’s Go Insane–a great album to have on in the background while working around the studio. Congratulations–you’ve made it to the end. Think back on what you’ve learned and start to think about your future.
