The Grammy Museum has selected 119 high school students from 29 states to take part in its 13th annual Grammy Camp program, which will host programs in Nashville and Los Angeles.
The Grammy Camp Nashville will welcome 40 participants at Belmont University from May 30-June 3. The five-day, non-residential summer music camp offers instruction in four music career areas, including Audio Engineering, Songwriting, Vocal Performance, and Instrumental Performance for bass, drums, guitar, and keyboards.
The Grammy Camp Los Angeles will be held from July 18-22 at University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.
“GRAMMY Camp provides a unique, in-depth experience for high school students who are interested in exploring careers in the music industry,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy and Chair of the GRAMMY Museum Board. “The program engages campers to work collaboratively across their chosen career tracks, so they increase their skills as they move ahead on their musical paths. I have no doubt GRAMMY Camp will produce future GRAMMY winners such as Maren Morris, who was a participant at our very first GRAMMY Camp in 2005 and received the 2016 GRAMMY for Best Country Solo Performance.”
Applications for GRAMMY Camp 2018 will be available online in September at www.grammyintheschools.com. The deadline to apply is March 31, 2018. Financial aid is available and approximately 70 percent of GRAMMY Camp participants who have applied for financial aid have received assistance.
