TWO WEEK CAMP

Learn about the life of a recording star – from penning that first lyric all the way to releasing a debut single. Professional songwriters and producers will train students to compose, create and record a master recording and single, and then learn about marketing strategies to launch it to the public. This session culminates in a “Single Release Party”, where guests of the students will be invited to hear their original works in a performance setting.
