Helping Young People Realize Their Greatness In The GeniusLab Studio
A few months ago a mother called me and asked if I would work with her 18-year-old son. I don’t usually work with youth but something touched me and I felt compelled to say “yes”. I know that the GeniusLab Studio was built to help people “realize your greatness” it’s our theme. Now I also realize that we need to be helping young people realize their greatness. This has been a wonderful experience working with CJ Young.
We started by talking about core values, core beliefs, the mission he has here on the planet at this time, and his goals. Once these were established it was clear that CJ loves music and he is good! So thats how it all got started.
Greatness In The Music
As this young man became focused and clear on what he wanted to do, we started laying out a timeline. Well, he blew that right to pieces. He graduated from High School 6 months early and is looking to get a job in a studio so he can learn more about music production. He is also writing songs and coming to the studio weekly to develop his craft.
Adapting To Helping Young People Realize Their Greatness
As a producer I have worked mostly with adults. My work with HearTheHope.org and FinalCycles.org has really helped broaden my horizons. But producing RAP with an 18 year old has been a real treat. CJ and his friend Hunter both whip out their phones where that have their lyrics stored and they start articulating at increadable speed!
The First Of Many Projects
This is the begining of some fun and inspiering work to help young people realize their greatness in the GeniusLab Studio. We are teaming up with HearTheHope.org to bring CJ’s music out to the world. Stay tuned!!
