Scott Goldman Talks GRAMMY Camp's Future

Minutes after moderating the Guest Professional Day panel, featuring industry professionals such as producer Rob Knox, singer/songwriter Joy Williams, and Capital Cities co-front man Ryan Merchant, GRAMMY Foundation Vice President Scott Goldman shares his views on the importance of GRAMMY Camp, music education for youth, and future plans for GRAMMY Camp. “Growing up, I could only wish I had something like this,” Goldman says. He goes on to explain that like him, countless other professionals had to “figure it out” as they went in the industry as there were no programs like GRAMMY Camp to help guide prospective artists. He states this is an important factor in what makes GRAMMY Camp and his participation in giving back so special, not only to him, but also to other industry professionals, and the students learning from them. This passion for the industry and giving back is a driving force in the push to expand GRAMMY Camp. When asked where he saw GRAMMY Camp in five years, Goldman replied, “We want to see GRAMMY Camp reach more cities and have more rotations in a year. Already we have GRAMMY Camp Los Angeles, New York, and Nashville, as well as the GRAMMY Camp Weekend program.”

Accessibility is a major concern for the GRAMMY Foundation when moving forward with GRAMMY Camp.  The Foundation’s goal is to add more camps throughout the country and year to make participating in this experience a reality for more teens that aspire to break into the music industry. Even within the next couple years, the GRAMMY Foundation is looking to make this mission come to fruition.
