Transforming Spotify's SXSW House Into a Music Studio for Austin's Kids

Transforming Spotify's SXSW House Into a Music Studio for Austin's Kids

At the end of SXSW, we turned our temporary Spotify House into a permanent musical home for local students at Kealing Middle School.

Working with volunteers from Acoustic Spaces, DPR Construction, Rebuilding Together Austin, and Mindpop, we used repurposed materials to install three music studios equipped with speakers, mixing boards, furniture, and artwork.

Having all of these people who are gifted in some way and are so passionate about what they do take this amount of time and put this amount of resources into doing something because they believe in my kids, and they believe in who we are as a campus, there's nothing better than that.   

– Kenisha Coburn, Principal of Kealing Middle School

We also promoted a playlist of songs that inspired the budding talents of Kealing Middle School's music production class.
