Established by R&B and soul virtuoso Warren Dean Flandez, Studio Cloud 30 gathers experienced artists to train creative types in nine artful pursuits, such as drums, guitar, piano, acting, and media. Instead of composing music with whoopee cushions, students can learn to play piano like Chopin, strum like Hendrix, and drum like Animal. During 30-minute instrument lessons, music makers show students the basics of chording, playing accompaniment, and playing by ear, and drum drills focus on rhythm, groove, and pocket. To further develop tunesmith talents, patrons learn song structure, melody, and lyrical hooks in the songwriting and arranging class, and nail down musical philosophy during theory classes boasting the certified instruction of the Royal Conservatory of Music. Stage coaching bestows proper mic methods for live gigs, TV appearances, and Rock Band Wii marathons, and vocal instruction brings out the golden pipes in each participant. Meanwhile, players on the stage of life can undergo personal acting coaching to prep for auditions and theatre, and future media buffs can attend media coaching to become adept at live, televised, radio, and print endeavours.
Studio Cloud 30
One of Studio Cloud 30's missions is to bridge "the gap between music schools and major label development." The sleek studio is an open-concept facility that caters to aspiring entertainers of all skill levels. Vocal coaches train singers with tips for both live performances and studio sessions; percussion teachers drill drummers on rhythm, groove, and pocket; and acting instructors deliver one-on-one assistance for excelling in auditions for roles in theatre productions and commercials advertising stage trapdoors. The studio professes a credo of "for artists, by artists," a message of support for up-and-coming performers of all kinds.
