Please welcome the 45th member to the Berklee City Music Network, Workshop Houston. Founded in 2003 and located in the 3rd Ward of Houston, Texas, their mission is to “provide youth with creative, technical, and educational resources.” Through this they strive to “lay the groundwork for a just society by creating a community that provides youth with support, expanded opportunities, and new definitions of success.”
They offer students four areas to expand their knowledge, the Chopper Shop, the Style Shop, the Scholar Shop, which every student must attend, and for music, the Beat Shop. They provide after-school and summer programming for middle and high school students.
Be sure to check out their website to see the bicycles their students design and build, as well as the clothing students make in the Style Shop. For your listening enjoyment please watch this music video of an original song by their students titled “Study Hard” and be sure to visit their YouTube channel to view more of their students’ music videos.
Please join us in welcoming Workshop Houston to the Berklee City Music Network!
