Area 954 Presents Broward Beats
The youth of Margate Middle School have spent the past four months creating an Extended Play record. Produced by The Motivational Edge teaching artist Gerald “Nova Sound” Campbell, with the assistance of teaching artist Lakshmi Ruiz, Alexandar Star and Lyndon Gray, the EP turned the classroom into a studio.
Students expressed ideas over new instrumentals in a free flowing artistic environment, and after sharing song concepts and titles, they named themselves Area 954 and titled their EP Broward Beats.
Members of the newly formed Area 954 learned songwriting skills, percussion and music production while creating the rhythm of Broward Beats. The students concluded the project by acknowledging The Motivational Edge and The Crockett Foundation as the reason for the fun- filled experience, thanking the organizations for the opportunity.
Listen to the project on our MoEd soundcloud radio station.
