High Schoolers, Apply for GRAMMY Camp 2014

As a former GRAMMY Camp counselor I suppose I may be a little biased to tell you to apply to this program, but the truth is I'm only biased because I saw first hand just how great it is. There aren't many ways for high school students to really get a true taste of what it's like to work in music, create professional level work, and meet and work with real professionals, but GRAMMY Camp is a place where you get to do all of that with a group of students who are just as passionate about music as you are. So, if you're in high school and interested in working in the music industry check it out and seriously consider applying, it might change your life. 

GRAMMY Camp— the GRAMMY Foundation's signature music industry camp for
U.S. high school students — is an interactive summer music experience focusing on all aspects of commercial music. GRAMMY Camp provides instruction by industry professionals in an immersive creative environment with cutting-edge technology in professional facilities. GRAMMY Camp in New York and St. Paul, Minn., will each include a nine-day interactive residential summer music experience. GRAMMY Camp L.A. will host a 10-day residential camp. GRAMMY Camp Nashville will host a five-day nonresidential day camp for local students. Focusing on all aspects of commercial music, this unique opportunity provides instruction by industry professionals in an immersive creative environment with cutting-edge technology in professional facilities.
