as a means of promoting anyone who is part of the club or part of carlmont's music, to further the modern music community at carlmont and create a new culture of school spirit when it comes to musical artistry at carlmont. We also plan to include any and all "creative" people in our club, whether it be photography, videography, poetry, graphic
design, animation, etc, there is a place for you at Music Production Club, as we can always use album covers, music videos, lyrics, and more for our musicians.
