The 'goal' is the sound of music
BY JON POMPIA THE PUEBLO CHIEFTAIN JAN 24, 2018
GOAL Academy High School students with their sights on the top 10, or at least a stage and microphone, are getting a leg, and an ear, up in the music biz.
Through an innovative partnership between GOAL and Perfect World Music Academy, 40 young men and women now have the enviable opportunity of learning the art of music-making and audio recording from the ground up.
Carl and Melinda Lucero, who returned to Pueblo to establish a state-of-the-art recording facility, teamed up with GOAL Academy so that musical doors previously closed to students, for economic or other reasons, could be swung wide open.
"We wanted a music training facility in our hometown to reach youth who wouldn't have access to music education," said Carl Lucero.
"We are committed to instilling a set of skills that will make students more valuable in the workforce and potentially pursue a career in the music business."
The Luceros' program is divided into four sectors:
Band Camp, in which students learn to play instruments and develop musical skills, even if they have no previous experience. Working, professional musicians serve as instructors.
Audio engineering and lab, an easy-to-follow but comprehensive look into the technology and techniques used for contemporary multitrack recording.
Music production and lab, a hands-on opportunity to learn how commercial music is made.
Song writing, to help develop the skills to create original songs based on groove, melody, lyric, harmony and structure.
"After just three weeks, the response has been overwhelming," Carl Lucero said. "Both students and parents we've seen around town have told us they love it.
"The kids want to be here all the time, and so do the staff. It's just a really creative environment."
Tuesday, inside the Perfect World studio, about 25 students from the blended learning academy's various campuses were hard at work on the two things that can help make or break a band.
The right name and a perfect sense of timing.
"Nah, '10 O'Clock Combo' isn't any good," came a voice from a huddle of engaged bandmates.
"And '10 O'Clock Buffet' won't make the cut, either. That's getting rejected."
In the end, VPSR, the initials of the players' first names, was selected.
Across the room, the discussions were much more colorful.
"So, we're all wearing blue today," offered one student. "So how about 'Blue Friday?' "
In the third circle, "Purple Blue Doritos" fell by the wayside as "Violet Melody" rose to the top.
Ear-catching band names in place, the students turned their attention to a much-more important facet of music-making.
A keen sense of timing and rhythm.
With a metronome keeping time, and Carl Lucero and his team of pro musicians offering direction and encouragement, a rotating bloc of bassists, guitarists, keyboardists, drummers, vocalists and even a violinist and trumpet player tackled the opening stanza of Coldplay's simple but elegant "Magic."
"Listen to the click track," Carl Lucero told the performers. "Guitarists: hit the D chord strong before going back to E. Vocalists, closer to the mics. ..."
The initial takes were, admittedly, a little rough, due in large part to tentativeness on the part of fledgling players.
But as the rehearsals progressed, so did the proficiency level, with the final go-around sounding remarkably solid and in-time.
"Three weeks ago, most of these kids had never even held an instrument," Carl Lucero said. "So you can see the progress they're making."
On both keyboards and at the microphone, Alyza Zapien was one of the key figures making music magic inside the studio.
"I'm not sure I'll pursue a career in music, but I'm very grateful GOAL has given us some kind of music program," the senior said. "I know when I left East (High School), I really was craving a music outlet.
"So I'm really happy to be here."
And that goes for the man leading the way and nodding his head in time to the beat.
"Our job is create a spark and allow them to find their fire and passion for music in a fun and safe environment," said Carl Lucero.
"And the kids are really starting to get a grasp on music and the global aspect of the industry. They're getting the full background here."
