On Jan. 22, 2014 Mr. Hood will participate with several students in the USC campusGRAMMY Camp. This is a special one day music industry camp where participants with varied interests learn how the music business works.

Check out all of the possible career tracks:

There are many careers in music that make the success of an artist possible. This Career Track will explore the inner-workings of the music business including, marketing, management, touring, concert production, publicity, entertainment law, and entrepreneurship in this ever-changing industry. Students should have a passion for exploring the non-performance roles on an artist's team and a basic knowledge of the current music industry.
Mr. Hood has launched an after school program to help students learn how to compose. This program is currently in operation at Compton Unified School District. This program is the first phase of a non profit program to bring technology programs to underprivileged youth.
