Our own music publishing company
CTRL-ENT.  will be a modern publishing company run by the students in the Music Industry and Media class with close association with students in the Business Interactive Technology (BIT), Communication Arts (CAA), and the Academy of Music.Their goal is to become a fully student-based record label and publisher, providing fellow students and other members of our community with recording, copyrighting, PRO memberships, licensing, promotion, sales and more.
This is a great time to get involved from the ground up in what promises to be a very innovative and exciting curriculum filled with potential career opportunities.
In the recording class and business class, two separate classes that meet the same period, students can select which aspect of music they would like to focus on such as Marketing, Recording Engineering, Crew, Artist and Repertoire, Law and Legal, etc.
Big plans are in the making for next year with auditioning and signing artists, music festivals, and more.
If you are interested contact Mr. Bruning at rbruning@lausd.net. or at the company address
