Grammy Camps To Be Held In 3 Cities In 2012

The Grammys.

The Recording Academy announced yesterday that they will be holding three sets of GRAMMY camps in three major United States cities in 2012. The signature camp experience for American high school students will be held in New York City, Los Angeles and Nashville in the summer. The camp was previously held in Los Angeles for the last seven years and for the first time in New York City last summer. This is the first year it’s expanded to Nashville.

Applications are currently online and students can apply at grammyintheschools.com. The application deadline is March 31st, 2012. Financial aid is available and 75 percent of students who have applied for aid have received it in the past.  Students are allowed to apply for all three locations, and there is discounted tuition available for participation in multiple sessions. The GRAMMY camp is also searching for camp counselors between the ages of 21 to 25.

“We are extremely excited to bring GRAMMY Camp to three dynamic music markets in the summer of 2012, and provide this valuable experience to the next generation of music makers,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy® and the GRAMMY Foundation. “GRAMMY Camp is one of our most immersive programs in terms of exposing young people to what it’s like to have an actual working career in the music business, and the opportunity to receive instruction directly from GRAMMY®-winning artists and industry professionals instills knowledge, confidence and lasting lessons on GRAMMY campers.”
