The GRAMMY Museum announced on May 25 that 86 high school students from 71 U.S. cities across 22 states have been selected as participants in the 19th annual GRAMMY Camp program. Those students include Benjamin Corburn and Diego Brown of Culver City High School. A further student, Kimberly Tucker, is a Culver City resident though not a CCHS student.

Gracie Abrams, G Flip, Moore Kismet, Paul Klein from LANY, and Lizzy McAlpine will be the guest artists at this year’s camp, and all will offer valuable career advice to the students. The camp will be held from Sun, July 16 to Sat, July 22 at USC’s Ronald Tutor Campus Center.

“GRAMMY Camp embodies the GRAMMY Museum’s mission and education initiatives,” said Michael Sticka, President/CEO of the GRAMMY Museum. “We’re thrilled that with the support of the Hot Topic Foundation, Camp has extended to seven days this year, allowing high school students interested in a career in music more time and immersion to study with leading industry professionals and artists, resulting in a genuine learning experience about life in the music industry.”

According to a statement from the GRAMMY organization, the camp will focus on, “all aspects of commercial music and provide instruction by industry professionals in an immersive and creative environment. The program features eight music career tracks: Audio Engineering, Electronic Music Production, Music Business, Music Journalism, Songwriting, Vocal Performance, Video Production, and Instrumental Performance. All tracks culminate in virtual media projects, recordings and/or performances.”

Applications for GRAMMY Camp 2024 will be available online in September at www.grammycamp.com.
