Black Eyed Peas to Start Music Academy in NYC!

The Black Eyed Peas has had plenty of success selling records and now they are expanding their methods of sharing knowledge by opening up a school in lower Manhattan.

The Peapod Adobe Youth Voices music and multimedia academy will be making its east coast debut this summer. Students from ages 13 to 19 will be able to enroll based on teacher recommendations and their work including editing, designing and camera operation as well as music. The Peapod Foundation is an organization founded by the Peas themselves and they are teaming up with The Adobe Foundation. Adobe Systems, creators of Flash, Adobe, Photoshop and Acrobat, have their own philanthropic group and have teamed up with the hip-pop group in Cali starting three Youth Voices academies already. This is scheduled to be ready in July. Will.I.Am made a comment, “Our passion for music and media was fueled by many generous people on our road to success.”

That is real big for them to do, I know a lot of gifted kids and others that are interested in music would love the opportunity to attend this school. Kudos to BPE….
