Imagine learning how to write, record, and produce your own music without leaving campus.The Music Department is allowing students to express their creativity through a unique program.

Music professor Dr. Tolley advises Class Records, a record label managed by the students.Gaining experience in a real recording studio is a plus for the students while learning how to market and promote their work.

The Class Records staff are expected to present a mixtape and a talent show during the school year.Last year the label struggled because some students did not put in the same effort as others.

However, Class Records is back in full effect.“This semester looks like a good one…there are some hungry kids. They are willing to work.”, Dr. Tolley said excitedly

“…Everything is done by the students. They elect their board members…I just over see it…” Dr. Tolley added.Also, non-music majors can join the student run label as long as they are enrolled in Delaware State University.

Class Records is a place for music lovers to demonstrate their skills and turn their passion into a  future career. Dr. Tolley said it best, “Organize your art and maintain you passion. Try to be inventive. Try to be like Steve Jobs. Think outside the box.”
