The Pasadena-based Los Angeles College of Music is offering a unique opportunity for aspiring musicians to learn from top professionals in the music industry through its “Summer at LACM” programs. The programs, which start on June 17, 2024, are designed for teens aged 12 and up, college students, and students of all ages interested in pursuing a career in music.

Participants will have the chance to work with Grammy-nominated faculty who have collaborated with some of the biggest names in music, including Usher, Ariana Grande, H.E.R., Britney Spears, John Mayer, Michael Bublé, Miley Cyrus, and the Pussycat Dolls. The programs span over three weeks and cover a range of topics, including music performance, songwriting, music production, composing for visual media, music entrepreneurship, and independent artist study.

“Small class sizes and intensive one-on-one coaching make this a program that is truly unique,” said Erin Workman, Executive Vice President and Songwriting & Music Business Department Head at the Los Angeles College of Music, who has worked with and influenced the early careers of Miley Cyrus, Zac Efron, and Selena Gomez. “I’ve seen students go from never having performed on stage and holding great fear about it to fronting a band and discovering their ability to engage an audience in an exciting way — all in 5 days.”

The programs are geared towards music enthusiasts of all skill levels and include master classes, private lessons, student recitals, large ensembles, and recording sessions led by Los Angeles College of Music faculty and current top musicians, songwriters, and producers. Students will have the opportunity to record in professional studios and walk away with original songs and newfound confidence in their artistry.

The Los Angeles College of Music is offering a 20% early access discount for those who apply by Monday, April 15, with enrollment and payment due by May 1, 2024. The college is also drawing winners monthly for a free week of programming and offering scholarships to eligible students.
