Tiffin University to host annual songwriting, music production summer camp
Tiffin, Ohio — Tiffin University’s School of Creative and Media Arts is set to host the 24th Songwriting and Music Production Summer Camp from July 16 through July 20.
The camp aims to provide a total creative experience in music writing, performing, and recording commercial styles like pop, jazz, R&B, a cappella, hip-hop, among others. Students from high school and college, amateur and professional musicians, and educators can all attend the camp that offers individualized programs for each of them.
Professional artists-in-residence will collaborate and provide personalized instruction to all the attendees. The 2023 artists-in-residence will include the Atlanta-based producer and recording artist, PRISCA, and singer-songwriter, Regina Sayles, a Tiffin native now based in Pennsylvania and New York.
The campers will work with them and other instructors to write and record original music in a studio setting. The final night of the camp will see the culmination of their efforts in the form of a performance that is free and open to the public.
Apart from working with the artists-in-residence, campers will also perform in rock, pop, hip-hop, indie, and vocal-oriented groups. They will receive solo coaching sessions and participate in workshops on songwriting, beatboxing, live looping, studio production, among 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!”
Since the camp runs all day and late into the evening, the camp provides on-campus housing and meals for an all-inclusive fee of $625. However, space is limited to 50 campers, so interested students are encouraged to register as soon as possible.
Campers will reside in single, air-conditioned dorm rooms, and meals will be served in the Cole Dining Hall. They are also encouraged to bring their musical instruments to use in their songwriting and production activities.
