Edna Brewer: This week we taught students the C major scale and how to record the scale to the click on Reason. Students caught on pretty easily the problems students had were playing to the click but after going around giving one on one instruction they caught on.

There's some great topics that people are focusing on this year. I think that they should be kept secret but I dont mind leaking a few of them.

 1. How people are abusing their water rights... yea thats a hard one to grasp but it makes sense. Great topic!

2. San Francisco... This one's for the San Francisco lovers! Tourists, sights, downtown & interviews. Compelling huh?

This was test week at Edna Brewer. On Friday the students were tested on everything that they learned  in class so far. They had to prove that they were able to produce a beat including a Redrum, Matrix, Dr.Rex and a recorded track. They all succeed with very little help! They are working on earning themselves a Halloween pizza party this Friday but it will be based off of they're behavior.

The students at Edna Brewer are excelling wonderfully. They all have a grasp of the way the Reason software works and have begun working with the keyboards and recording their own music. They have even started to collaborate and make music together. A good number of our student have had the program before and are helping to catch up students who may miss a few days and are falling behind.

BUMP Records artists help to promote HIV/AIDS education and prevention

This Summer 3 BUMP Records artists were asked to participate in a campaign promoting AIDS testing and awareness in the African American comminity.  The Greater Than AIDS campaign(www.greaterthan.org) used our BUMP artists as models in a visual advertising campaign that can be viewed on billboards, bus stops signs, and targeted emails educating African Americans with life-saving information about HIV/AIDS and to confront the stigma surrounding the disease.  The campaign chose young people from the community for the ad to help their peers feel comfortable about asking questions.
