Every year The Grammy Foundation offers a music industry camp for talented high school students and this year, the camp will be held in four cities with the option of four different tracks: performance, music journalism, video production and music business. The camp is a great opportunity for students to work with Grammy nominated and winning artists and specialists while developing their skills in different aspects of entertainment industry.

The deadline to apply is coming up! Make sure you apply before March 31, 2014.

The camp curriculum provides students the opportunity to hone their abilities in audio engineering, electronic music production, music business, music journalism, songwriting, video production, and performance (bass, drums, guitar, keyboards, vocals, winds & strings).
