LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) – The GRAMMY Museum has today (Oct. 7) announced the launch of GRAMMY Camp Miami, presented by Royal Caribbean International.
Slated to take place from Tuesday, July 28–Saturday, Aug. 1, 2020, at the Royal Caribbean Entertainment Studios on Florida International University’s Biscayne Bay Campus, the inaugural GRAMMY Camp Miami will offer selected high school students from across the nation “an interactive five-day nonresidential summer music experience” focused on all aspects of commercial music.
The program will be led by a host of industry professionals and features five music career tracks: Audio Engineering; Electronic Music Production; Songwriting; Vocal Performance; and Instrumental Performance. All tracks culminate in media projects, recordings, and/or performances.
“GRAMMY Camp is one of the most immersive summer camps for high school students interested in a career in music, giving young people the opportunity to study with music industry professionals, resulting in a genuine learning experience about life in the music industry,” said Michael Sticka, President of the GRAMMY Museum. “Expanding our education programs to the Chapters of the Recording Academy is a primary goal of the Museum, so we are thrilled to partner with Royal Caribbean to bring this program to the Miami area for the first time.”
Nick Weir, Senior Vice President of Entertainment for Royal Caribbean International, added: “As a leader in innovative entertainment, we are thrilled to bring the next generation of artists to our Entertainment Studios in Miami through our partnership with GRAMMY Camp. Students will have access to some of the top people and equipment in the industry, helping them further develop their talents, hone in on their passions, and forge their paths toward a bright future in music.”
Royal Caribbean will be underwriting $1,400 of the $1,500 tuition fee for each student attending who is based within 100 miles of the greater Miami area.
GRAMMY Camp Miami will be preceded by the Museum’s annual signature music industry camp for high school students, GRAMMY Camp Los Angeles, which will be held from Tuesday, July 14–Saturday, July 18, 2020, at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.
