M-Audio has sponsored the Friends of Washington Prep Foundation and the arts education it provides to students at George Washington Preparatory High School. During its 11 years of existence, the school's innovative arts program has provided education, motivation and direction to thousands of underprivileged students living in South Central Los Angeles. M-Audio has committed to outfit the school's music lab with a variety of hardware and software solutions.

M-Audio's contributions to the school's music lab will include M-Audio Ozone audio interface keyboards; Oxygen8 and Radium49 controller keyboards; BX8 studio reference monitors; a complete collection of ProSessions Sound and Loop libraries; Solaris microphones; Octane preamps; and Propellerhead Reason and Ableton Live.

To celebrate this new partnership, legendary recording artist Jackson Browne—a Friends of Washington Prep Foundation board member—and a group of students from the school will be giving a presentation at M-Audio's NAMM Booth (#6700) on Sunday, January 18, at 11:00 a.m.

Prior to graduating from the school, students are required to write music, choreograph dance routines or develop their own screenplay. The music department involves students in the production of an album, and the drama department stages dramatic and musical theater productions. The recent original musical theater production, Ephraim's Song, was awarded four NAACP Image Awards. In addition to receiving fundamental instruction, Washington Prep performing arts students have opportunities to gain professional experience by performing with musicians including Lionel Hampton, Wynton Marsalis, Al Jarreau, Jackson Browne and Buddy Collette.

"M-Audio is thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with such an amazing organization," said Adam Castillo, M-Audio marketing director. "It is an honor to be able to facilitate this level of character growth and creative development."
