Creative Life Support

The 2016 Real Life Music Camp
Founded by Liz Berlin of the multi-platinum band Rusted Root, REAL LIFE MUSIC CAMP provides aspiring artists with the no-nonsense knowledge and mentorship needed to navigate the perils of the music industry. We focus on the creation of original music and career preparation with workshops that extend beyond traditional musicianship such as concert booking, band dynamics, marketing, and web presence management. Upon completion, all participants will receive a professionally recorded demo of their own original music, professional band photo, comprehensive bio, and a wealth of printed resources to help guide them in their careers.

For students drawn to the technical end of the business, REAL LIFE STUDIO CAMP delivers hands-on experience with state-of-the art recording technology at Mr. Smalls Recording Studio. Headed by industry veteran Larry Luther whose production credits range from punk rockers Anti-Flag to rap juggernaut 50 Cent, the curriculum is as insightful as it is practical.

• Record in Pittsburgh's most professional studio!
• Rock your best look for your band photo shoot!
• Perform live on stage by the end of the week!
• Walk away with a full band press kit and guidance to chart your musical future!

All of us at Mr. Smalls are sad to release the news that Mr. Smalls Skate Park is permanently closed. 
When Mr. Smalls Skatepark opened 10 years ago, we were the only skatepark in the area. 10 years later, free parks have multiplied throughout the city.  Even though the Skatepark will be missed tremendously, there have been some amazing memories created.
