Build A Band
D'DAT Management, Inc. is a musical project based company who collaborates with artists and art organizations with an emphasis on Indigenous youth and communities in Farmington, New Mexico. D'DAT creates many projects to uplift Indigenous artists and their cultures. With projects in multiple mediums of the arts, one particular program flourishing through the arts sector and our community is “Build A Band” - a crash course in Music Artistry and Business. The course covers topics ranging from instrument artistry, marketing, interpersonal dynamics to an in depth look at the business end of the music industry. With relationship building and thoughtful anticipation, young people don’t just have the keys to a successful band, but better yet, become a team of emotional citizens in the community.
