ENTATY Productions History

ENTATY Productions was founded by Demetrius Brown, a native of South East Washington D.C. He discovered a love for music, poetry, artistic expression at an early age in life, playing drums in the junior high school band as well as being a member of the concert choir. He was accepted to the world renowned Duke Ellington High School of the Arts, where he honed his skills in music theory and as a vocalist. During that time, he also garnered local fame by joining a singing group called “Yunek”, where he performed at various venues such as Orioles Stadium, Great Adventure theme Park and venues across the Mid-Atlantic. After attending the University of the District of Columbia for two years for music education, he decided to venture out and start a music label, Maximum Level Entertainment, along side like minded partners.

That partnership, with emcee and business partner HALA, fostered into a HIP Hop group XL. The duo would go on to write, produce and perform original material and expose local talent to industry professionals through networking events, talent showcases and concerts. Through performances around the city, they connected with Multi-Platinum Producer, Chucky Thompson, signing on to his label Black Diamond Entertainment.

He also had a desire to “give back” to the community and the people who employed him, trusted him with their youth and gave him a chance to practice his gift. Through employment in youth development, he mastered the concepts of self-proficiency and barrier removal. He discovered that arts and the humanities have been stripped from the general

education curriculum in many schools. He nurtured ENTATY

Productions as a way to weave artistic expression into the

fabric of youth development and overall improved

Entaty core curriculum
ENTATY Core Curriculum

  • The Core Music Curriculum ENTATY’s core music curriculum comprises arranging, ear training, harmony, and music technology. These four subjects are the foundation of ENTATY’s educational offerings in music, and the entering student proficiency assessment and Introduction to Music Technology exam are designed to assess every entering student's knowledge base in each of these core curriculum fields.

  • ArrangingEach of the four courses in the arranging curriculum for entering youth explores different arranging concepts and techniques, guides students in refining and enhancing arranging abilities, and provides opportunities for creating musical arrangements in various styles of contemporary popular music. There is a sequential nature to the four courses, with each focusing on different and increasingly more complex aspects of arranging such as double time rhyming patterns, song bridge and hook development, creative content building.

  • Ear TrainingThe goal of the ear training core curriculum is to help music students master the basic components of musical craft; to assist youth with understanding melody; to aid writers in notating music they have composed or arranged; to help performers develop their musical vocabulary; and to assist listeners in understanding the music they are hearing.; studying the history of youths specific genre of music

  • HarmonyThrough the completion of the harmony core curriculum, students acquire musical literacy, analytical skills, and the ability to incorporate the topics they have studied into their own music. A thorough understanding of common harmonic practice, melodic development, and the relationship between melody and harmony in contemporary styles is important. An understanding of harmony provides musicians with a rich palette for future creative choices in performing and producing.

  • Music TechnologyA demonstrated competency in music technology is integral to each student's experience. Technology plays a significant role in almost every aspect of a successful music-related career. Additionally, it is a powerful teaching and learning tool utilized in many of the courses offered at the college. Covering a broad spectrum of basic and music-related computer skills, the music technology core curriculum provides students with a strong technology foundation on which to build the necessary skills required by each major and field of interest.
