This spring, Living Arts eighth grade students recorded and mixed the songs they have been writing all semester with teaching artists Sterling Toles and Lauren Johnson in the historic United Sound Systems Studios! United Sound is where legendary artists such as Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis and The Temptations have recorded in the past. The students said figuring out what to write their songs about was difficult in the beginning, but all in all they have had a fantastic time this semester.
