High School Students, Apply to Attend GRAMMY Camp in New York or Los Angeles

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with a lot of great music companies as well as work with and even meet some of my favorite musicians and music business idols. Still, if you asked me what my favorite experience has been in the music industry my answer, without hesitation, would be working with the extraordinary students at GRAMMY Camp. This remarkable summer program gives high school students the chance to work with industry professionals in order to learn what it takes to become one as well as collaborate with other students to create, record, and present original material and business ideas. I still wear the camp shirt regularly just to have an excuse to tell people about it (seriously, I really am that nerdy) and I could probably write an entire book about what makes GRAMMY Camp so incredible. But, why don’t you find out for yourself what makes it so great by applying. I suspect it will change your life and show you that you’re capable of more than you’ve ever imagined.

You could spend your summer in your hometown dreaming about being, or working with, a rockstar, or you could spend your summer actually doing it. GRAMMY Camp is a professionally-focused residential music industry summer camp for high school students. It is run by The GRAMMY Foundation and takes place in both Los Angeles and New York City (you can apply for one or both). Your days will be packed with instruction from industry experts, group collaboration, guest panelists, work in your track, performances from guest artists, good food, and preparation for a showcase performance or presentation. Financial aid is available and most students who apply for it receive some type of aid.
