Sound Thinking NYC * Student Application


Funded by the Mayor's Office for Media and Entertainment (MOME) as part of a series of initiatives targeting the under-representation of women in entertainment, Sound Thinking NYC is a new major initiative in the music industry by providing opportunities for young people to explore career opportunities in the music industry. By providing training, leadership development, paid internships, and college credit courses, Sound Thinking NYC will help prepare students for college and career success. Sound Thinking NYC is a program offered by the Creative Arts Team (CAT) at the City University of New York (CUNY), in partnership with New York is Music. The Sound Thinking NYC Summer Intensive program runs from July 9th to July 27th, 2018 and is for current 10th grade students who will be entering 11th grade in fall 2018. CAT's training and rehearsal spaces, at 101 W. 31st Street, 6th Fl, New York, NY 10001, will be the home base for this three-week, full-day (9am-3pm) summer program, which will include sessions at CAT as well as visits to sites throughout the city, such as Museums, music industry venues and sound production studios. Metrocards for the three-week period and lunch will be provided. Accepted students will attend free of charge, with additional free programs and workshops offered during the school year to the graduates of the Summer Intensive. Graduates of the 2018 Sound Thinking NYC Summer Intensive will be eligible to apply for paid internships the following summer, in 2019, as they prepare to enter 12th grade. Graduates will also have opportunities to enroll in free college courses, for college credit, during their senior year of high school.

Sound Thinking NYC is open to all academically eligible students, without regard to race, gender, national origin or other characteristic protected by law.

Applicants will be informed whether they are accepted into Sound Thinking NYC on or after May 11th.
