If you're a high school student who is interested in a career in the music industry you should definitely apply to attend GRAMMY Camp this year. GRAMMY Camp is run by GRAMMY in the Schools, one of the branches of the organization responsible for the actual GRAMMY Awards each year. It let's you spend a few weeks of your summer vacation in New York City, Nashville, or Los Angeles working with music industry executives, musicians, producers, and other top professionals getting hands-on training in what it takes to succeed in the music industry. You will get to hone your craft and learn how to promote, record, create, and perform great music along with other music lovers from all over the country and maybe even get to meet a few celebrity musicians along the way.
This may all sound like a dream come true but I know some of you are thinking there's no way you could convince your parents to fund this (the economy is rough) or save up all of your money and afford something like this right? GRAMMY Camp actually provides financial assistance and in recent years 75% of those who've applied have received it. Plus, with the code below, you can save $25 by waving the application fee.
