High School For Recording Arts Launches Campus In Los Angeles

The High School for Recording Arts (HSRA), a Minnesota-founded charter school, plans to open its Los Angeles campus in Hawthorne, California on Thursday (September 6). Dr. Jennifer Murphy, Program Director for Centinela Media Arts Academy in Hawthorne, announced Friday (August 31) that HSRA / Studio 4 will blend their curriculum, faculty and unique recording arts program with the Centinela Media Arts Academy, which is a part of the Centinela Valley Union School District, to form the High School for Recording Arts, Los Angeles.

"[The] High School for Recording Arts is the first school in the U.S. to incorporate pop-culture -- specifically hip-hop -- into its curriculum," said HSRA's Program Director, Bryan Rossi, of the school's importance. "We use experiential learning to connect core subjects like English, science, social studies and math, by relating them to the music business.
With the benefit of the small class format, students of HSRA LA will get individualized instruction, while they gain mastery in all areas of the music business, including engineering and production, graphic design, copy writing, marketing, artistic performance, contract negotiation, manufacturing, publishing, licensing, and more."
The school will house Studio-4, the school's in-house state-of-the-art 48-track recording studio; a professional music production faculty to train and mentor students; and a pre-production area, rehearsal space, and performance stage. According to the HSRA, over 70% of the students who have attended their program over the past nine years have graduated. They are also a grant recipient of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation.
