The GRAMMYs are returning to San Antonio, and we have availability for the upcoming Weekend Camp on Saturday, April 30th. The camp will be held for the 2nd year in a row at the Best Buy Teen Tech Center at Family Service Association.  Following you’ll find information about the program should your students be interested in this rare — and completely free — opportunity.

The program, tailored for high-school aged students, will take place from 9am-5pm at:

Best Buy Teen Tech Center, Family Service Association of San Antonio

3014 Rivas Street

San Antonio, Texas 78228

GRAMMY Camp® – Weekend is a one-day non-residential music industry experience where a small group (20-30) students will gain an introduction to the business of music and how they can become successful in it.

We are offering three music tracks in San Antonio:

  • Electronic Music Production
  • Video Production
  • Songwriting

Electronic Music Production
This Career Track is open to students that want to move their music creation and production skills to a more advanced level. Participants will learn state-of-the-art methods of programming, editing, sampling and mixing on digital audio work stations to help further develop their original compositions. This Career Track will also expose Campers to cutting-edge techniques in digital music production, remixing and sound manipulation.

Aspiring songwriters will sharpen the skills of their craft while exploring song structure, harmony, melody, lyric writing and where applicable, vocal technique. This track will also provide campers with the opportunity to collaborate with a band, singers and other songwriters. They will also gain valuable insight on sound business practices including effective marketing. This Career Track does not require you to be a singer. However, you should have rudimentary understanding of music theory, and piano or guitar performance abilities.

Video Production

Students will receive comprehensive instruction on video recording techniques, including camera and miking technique, pre- and post-production in multiple applications.  They will also learn aspects of traditional music and video production, and budgeting as applied to today’s rapidly changing industry.  Students should have a rudimentary understanding of video recording equipment.

As part of the experience at GRAMMY Camp® – Weekend, students will participate in programming at San Antonio Family Service Association through the Best Buy Teen Tech Center. The Best Buy Teen Tech Center is a space for teens to use new technologies with help from other teens and adult mentors, and then share their work with other teens across the globe through the Clubhouse Network.

Lunch is included as well in this unique opportunity, and spots will go on a first come-first served basis!  Below is the link for registration — we encourage you to complete the process as soon as possible to reserve your place:
