Some amazing things are happening in Brooklyn this week. The Williamsburg area is increasingly known for its creative atmosphere, but this week it has been taken to another level by the talented students and staff of GRAMMY Camp. The camp is run by The GRAMMY Foundation and open, through an application and audition process, to high school students all over the country and offers the chance to study one of several music industry tracks with accomplished professionals.
Three camps were held this year. First up was Nashville followed by Los Angeles. This week, thirty-one campers are making their home at Converse Rubber Tracks Studio in New York. The students are studying Audio/Video Engineering, Instrumental or Vocal Performance, Electronic Music Production, Marketing and Management, or Songwriting.
The camp focuses on immersing the students in their concentrations by working with top professionals from each field as well as learning an overview of every area of the industry. In addition, the campers work in interdisciplinary groups to create some amazing projects, songs, business ideas, and performances. The camp includes panels, presentations, and performances from guest professionals.
The New York camp culminates in a Launch Party featuring performances and presentations of what the talented students have spent the week working on.
If this sounds like something you would love to be a part of, be sure to apply next year on GRAMMY In The Schools. The deadline is March 31, 2012.
