The GRAMMY Foundation® announced today that 167 talented high school students from 125 U.S. cities and 31 U.S. states have been selected as participants in the 10th annual GRAMMY Camp® program.

Additionally, through a partnership with Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry, six international students from China, Japan and England will attend GRAMMY Camp in Los Angeles, bringing the total number of students attending all four of this year’s GRAMMY Camps to 173.

The Foundation's signature music industry camp for U.S. high school students is held in Nashville, Tenn.,at Belmont University; St. Paul, Minn., at McNally Smith College of Music; Los Angeles from July 12 – 21 at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music; and in New York from Aug. 3 – 11 at Converse Rubber Tracks (in Brooklyn).

Organizers say they create opportunities for high school students to work with music professionals to get real-world experience and advice about how to have a career in music. And that includes any kind of music career – audio engineer, concert promoter, electronic music producer, manager, musician, music journalist, singer, songwriter – any music career.

I've visited a radio station, been introduced to the music industry ropes, and collaborated across almost every career track. I've written the lyrics and music to a full length song within an hour, and brought it straight down to the studio to record professionally for the first time in my life. I've listened in on the wisdom of professionals, whom I never would have met otherwise. Lauren Padilla, GRAMMY Camp St. Paul 2014

Parents of Tweens will want to put this camp on their calendars for next year. Applications for GRAMMY Camp 2015 are currently online and the deadline is March 31, 2015. Financial aid is available and approximately 80 percent of GRAMMY Camp participants who have applied for financial aid have received assistance.
