3 Culver City Students Win Spots at GRAMMY Camp
June 24, 2021
Carter Long-Coffee, Allyn Matheson and Jasani Pitts will be among 81 talented high school students from 67 U.S. cities who will take part in the annual summer camp. All Time Low, Echosmith, and The War and Treaty will be this year's guest artists at the camp; they will discuss their career paths and help students prepare for the music industry. The signature music industry camp for high school students will be held virtually from Tuesday, July 20 to Saturday, July 24.
At this year’s camp, Culver City high schooler Coffee will focus on the Music Business while his schoolmate Matheson will concentrate on Music Journalism. Pitts will focus his efforts on Electronic Music Production.
“GRAMMY Camp is a prime example of the GRAMMY Museum’s mission and education initiatives,” said Michael Sticka, president of the GRAMMY Museum. “While the program will be a virtual experience again this year, it remains one of the most immersive summer camps for high school students interested in a career in music and continues to give young people the opportunity to study with music industry professionals, resulting in a genuine learning experience about life in the music industry.”
This GRAMMY in The Schools program is presented by the GRAMMY Museum. Additional program support is provided by the Bruno Mars Scholarship Fund, Chuck Lorre Family Foundation, Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation, Pacific Bridge Arts Foundation, and the Recording Academy®. The camp has historically taken place in Los Angeles as a five-day summer music experience. This year, in light of COVID-19, GRAMMY Camp will be a virtual interactive experience via digital conferencing.
Focusing on all aspects of commercial music, this unique opportunity provides instruction by industry professionals in an immersive, creative online environment. The program will feature seven music career tracks: Audio Engineering; Electronic Music Production; Music Business; Music Journalism; Songwriting; Vocal Performance; and Instrumental Performance. All tracks culminate in virtual media projects, recordings, and/or performances.
