Registration open for GRAMMY Museum Mississippi Summer Session FastTrack


Registration is now open for GRAMMY Museum® Mississippi‘s Summer Session FastTrack — a weeklong day camp that will give young musicians ages 9 to 14 insight into the creative and technological processes of recording and performing music.

The camp will take place from June 27 through July 1 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $25 per child, and the deadline to register is June 4 at 5:30 p.m. CST. Sponsors for Summer Session FastTrack include Hard Rock Biloxi, Maddox Foundation, Ella Fitzgerald Charitable Foundation, Entergy, and Mississippi Arts Commission

“We are so excited to host our Summer Session FastTrack weeklong day camp for young musicians, and we’re thankful to our wonderful partners for making this experience possible,” said Emily Havens, Executive Director of GRAMMY Museum Mississippi. “We call it ‘fast track’ because these young music makers are going to learn so much about the process of recording and performing music in a short amount of time. We’ll also dive into the influence of Mississippians on American music. It’s going to be a fantastic week of music and learning.” 

Taking place at GRAMMY Museum Mississippi, the weeklong day camp will give participants the opportunity to: 

  • Learn about the influence of Mississippians on American music and our cultural heritage 
  • Study work by Mississippi artists featured in the Museum 
  • Receive instruction on recording techniques, music production and live performance 
  • Explore song structure, harmony, melody, lyric writing, and vocal technique 

The participants will also collaborate with industry professionals and each other for a final production inspired by the Mississippi artists featured in the Museum. The final production will be featured on the Museum’s social media channels. 

Registration is required to attend the Summer Session FastTrack. Limited space is available. Parents can register their children for the camp at grammymuseumms.org . The $25 cost includes lunch and snacks that will be provided during the camp. Registration is open now through June 4, and a deposit is required at registration.
