Grammy Camp, the Grammy Museum’s program for American high school students interested in learning more about careers in the music industry, is expanding from five to seven days this year. The camp will be held from Sunday, July 16 through Saturday, July 22 at USC’s Ronald Tutor Campus Center.
The GRAMMY Museum announced Thursday (May 25) that 86 high school students have been selected as participants in the 19th annual GRAMMY Camp event. This year’s guest stars will be Gracie Abrams, Lizzie McAlpine, G Flip, Moore Lucks and Paul Klein from LANY. They will discuss their career paths and help prepare students for the music industry.
“Camp GRAMMYs embodies the mission and education initiatives of the GRAMMY Museum,” Michael Stika, President/CEO of the GRAMMY Museum, said in a statement. “We are thrilled that with the support of the Hot Topic Foundation, the camp has expanded to seven days this year, allowing high school students pursuing careers in music more time to study with leading industry professionals and artists , resulting in a real learning experience about life in a music industry.
Grammy Camp focuses on all aspects of commercial music and provides instruction by industry professionals in an intensive environment. The program consists of eight music career tracks – Audio Engineering, Electronic Music Production, Music Business, Music Journalism, Songwriting, Vocal Performance, Video Production and Instrumental Performance. All tracks end up in a virtual media project, recording and/or performing.
Tuition for Grammy Camp is $1,800, although need-based financial aid is available. The Grammy Camp site notes “over 70% of people who have applied for financial aid in the past year have received some form of aid.” Lunch is included, but transportation and accommodation are not. All GRAMMY campers must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or GRAMMY Museum approved adult.
Applications for Grammy Camp 2024 will be available online on the Grammy Camp site in September.
