In an effort to encourage creative expression and the entrepreneurial spirit, two cornerstones of the Motown Records legacy, Motown Museum will host the annual Motown EDU Summer Camp, August 8-12, 2016. Motown EDU will offer Detroit area high school students between the ages of 13 and 18 interested in songwriting, singing, musicianship, instrumental composition, and performance the opportunity to focus on their talents in an inspiring, historic and artistic environment. This year’s camp is in conjunction with the Skillman Foundation, Don Boscall Hall Youthville Detroit and the Detroit Memorial Park Association.
Young artists will enjoy five days of customized curriculum with a focus on artist and brand development, team building, identifying talents and skills, and integrating art into daily living. Songwriting sessions, recording studio time, beat-making workshops, and vocal and performance coaching are just some of the week’s highlights. Adding to their experience, participants will connect with presenters like Rhonda Ross Kendrick, actress, jazz vocalist and daughter of Berry Gordy, as well as Don Bosco Hall Youthville music producer and disc jockey instructor Morris Porter.
Motown EDU accepts a limited number of students for this incredible opportunity. With only a $20 application fee, sponsors will provide an automatic scholarship to each participant to cover camp-related costs. If you are interested in attending, please download and complete the application. You can also pick-up applications from the Motown Museum box office. Please review the application carefully.
Applications should be returned to Motown Museum at 2648 W. Grand Blvd., Detroit, MI 48208 by Friday, July 15, 2016.
