Tiffin University’s School of Creative and Media Arts will host the 24th Songwriting and Music Production Summer Camp from July 16 through July 20.
The camp is a total creative experience in music writing, performing and recording pop, jazz, R&B, a cappella, hip-hop and other commercial styles. The camp features individualized programs for high school and college students, as well as amateur and professional musicians and educators.
All attendees will collaborate with and receive personalized instruction from professional artists-in-residence. The 2023 artists-in-residence will be the Atlanta-based producer and recording artist PRISCA and singer-songwriter Regina Sayles, a Tiffin native now based in Pennsylvania and New York. Students will work with this pair and additional instructors to write and record original music in a studio setting. These efforts will culminate on the camp’s final night in the form of a performance that is free and open to the public.
Campers will also perform in rock, pop, hip-hop, indie and vocal-oriented groups. Each participant will receive solo coaching sessions and participate in workshops on songwriting, beatboxing, live looping, studio production and other topics.
“We are very excited to carry on our long tradition of providing a fun and rewarding experience for young musicians, songwriters and producers,” said Brad Rees, Vice Provost and Dean of the School of Creative and Media Arts. “This year’s team of instructors and guest artists is going to be especially inspiring for students to work with!”
Because the camp runs all day and late into the evening, on-campus housing and meals are provided for an all-inclusive fee of $625. Space is limited to 50 campers, so interested students are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
Campers will be in single, air-conditioned dorm rooms. Meals will be served in the Cole Dining Hall.
Campers are also encouraged to bring any musical instruments they would like to use in their songwriting and production activities.
