15 Dec: Chicago Students Learn the Music Business at Best Buy Grammy Camp

Nearly 40 high school students from Chicago got expert training from music industry professionals earlier this month during Best Buy’s Grammy Camp Weekend, powered by Chicago City of Learning.

The aspiring artists studied with Grammy Foundation professionals, whose clientele includes artists such as Beyoncé, Jason Mraz, Jay Z, Madonna, Pink and Usher. The teens developed industry skills while learning about songwriting, electronic music production and video production.

Participants were selected from area high schools, the Best Buy Teen Tech Center at Little Black Pearl Art and Design Academy and other Chicago City of Learning partner organizations.
