The GRAMMY Museum's five-day songwriting workshop, Summer Session, will be offered online for the first time. The workshop, which typically takes place at GRAMMY Museum L.A. Live for Los Angeles-based students, will offer enriching content in an interactive digital format and will be available to high school students throughout California.
Summer Session provides young songwriters and composers, who are currently enrolled in high school (grades 9–12), the resources necessary to build a solid foundation in songwriting. Skills developed in the program, such as collaboration and communication, are also beneficial to workforce development across careers in and out of music.
Record producer and songwriter, Boi-1da will participate during the workshop as a guest professional where workshop students will be able to participate in a Q&A with him. Boi-1da has produced for a variety of artists and groups, most notably Drake, Rihanna, Eminem, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Nas, Lana Del Rey, Kendrick Lamar, and Beyoncé and Jay-Z, among others.
The program is free and all students must apply to attend.
