The Pitch

Hi, Everybody! I'm Dennis A. Smith. You can call me Dennis or D. A.

And welcome to The 9/11 Project!

I'm a professional songwriter with three previous albums under my belt. I was once the lead singer for the band Lucky Dogg. I'm also the author of the critically acclaimed learning program That's Smart! How to Improve Learning Habits. With your help, The 911 Project will be my fourth album.

In this example from That's Smart! D. A. Smith demonstrates two different techniques to help memorize list information, in this case, the 50 U.S. States. The first way uses rhythm and melody, the next alphabetization and categories.

The Album

The 911 Project was inspired by the history of the last decade, from September 11, 2001 through the killing of Osama bin Laden in 2011. I wanted to take viewers on a journey through the experiences of outrage, being at war and redemption, and judging by the reactions of those who've heard the music, I believe I succeeded.

I'm going to need your help to make this production a reality. But some people will find some of the language and subject matter offensive, so I want you to know up front what you're getting into.
