What We’re About

The Lyrics Lounge, or LL (pronounced “L squared”), is a music arts initiative designed for student participants attending programs facilitated by Harlem Children’s Zone’s Employment and Technology Center, ETC. By focusing on the artistic development of promising teenage music practitioners, Lyrics Lounge functions as an independent artist collective that endeavors to prepare budding students for prospective careers in music entertainment and the recording arts. The objective of Lyrics Lounge is to provide a space within which students can explore and cultivate their artistic talents in the area of music while interrogating their knowledge of the music industry and the business practices that govern it. As a secondary goal, this project aims to afford students a better understanding of the ways in which their academic endeavors in more traditional disciplines—such as mathematics and the humanities—can directly affect their careers as aspiring music artists.
