DAP ME stand for?
DAP ME stands for The Demetrius Antion Posey School of Music
What is DAP
DAP ME is a music engineering school that teaches students the behind
the scenes of music. DAP ME would like to give back to the community what has been taken out of the
schools. Giving students a future in something they love to do.
DAP ME is a program designed to bring high-risk students from all
backgrounds back to an atmosphere of growth through their interest in music engineering. The goals
of the program are to create equal playing ground for young women with their male peers, combat the
increasing gang problem in the inner city, to decrease the minority and student drop out rate and
to give students who may not feel they have a future, just that. As the arts have been downsized in
our schools, many children are being left behind as they no longer have a creative outlet, DAP ME
will work to change that. It is the sincere hope of the founders that DAP ME will begin to create
positive and productive students and eventually productive members of society through music
What is the idea behind this project?
Students will learn, practice and create music while gaining an
understanding of the music business. Local musicians will offer lessons and seminars. As a minority
owned company at a time in which our government is constantly attempting to limit funding for the
arts, DAP ME will attempt to provide opportunities for those students who might not otherwise have
access to the tools which make survival in this country possible and enjoyable. It is their hope
that these programs will revive young people's faith in themselves and their futures.
How can I get my child involved in their after school music
We are now in the organizing stages of the program. We plan to have
fliers for these programs distributed in middle schools throughout the Los Angeles area. Teachers,
principals and counselors will be encouraged to recommend these programs to students who might
benefit, as well as meet the criteria. Local event listings will carry information about the times
and locations of these programs. Email us if you want to be notified as the program gets underway.
Who will offer these programs, lessons and
Local talented players and engineers in
the music industry will be asked to volunteer some time. Various volunteers as well as DAP ME staff
will offer music business seminars.
What makes this company different from
other music-related organizations?
DAP ME is
exposing students who may not have the opportunity to learn or even have knowledge of the technical
aspects of the music industry. We will give them sound industry advice as well as practical and
applied industry knowledge and experience.
