March is Music in Our Schools Month, and to celebrate, A group of 15 young musicians got to experience how it felt to perform live on the Harman Stage at the Palace Theater. 

"They will be learning how recording process works and how sound travels," said Angelica Durrell, founder of INTAKE. 

They learned this side of the music from artists such as Snoop Dogg and Slash from Guns 'n Roses in a documentary called "The Distortion of Sound" produced by Harman. 

"They talk about their struggles with the recording process and production process, and then having people compress the music and stream it," said Caroline Moore of HARMAN. 

Then the kids became real life producers. 

"We will give them the opportunity to live mix each other's performance on stage so they get an understanding of what it takes ot make a song perfect," said Moore. 

These young musicians are part of the non-profit organization INTAKE from schools in Stamford, Norwalk, Danbury, and even White Plains NY.

"INTAKE stands for Instrumentally Native Taking on the Classics. It's a youth development and arts education program," said Durrell. 

Practice makes perfect for INTAKE. They will be performing in their fourth annual Gala Concert on Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at Norwalk City Hall. 

"Everybody comes together at once," said Mariel Balderrama of INTAKE.
