In partnership with Hot Topic and the GRAMMY Foundation, Assistant Professor of Audio Engineering Nathan Adams coordinated and taught audio engineering for the first GRAMMY Camp Weekend at Belmont’s own Columbia Studio A on Music Row. The camp welcomed 30 high school students from the Nashville area working in three tracks including Audio Engineering & Electronic Music Production, Vocal Performance and Songwriting, with instruction from vocal coach Laura Donohue and performing artist Anne Heaton.

Additionally, Adams hosted a discussion panel for the students alongside GRAMMY-winning Artist Dave Haywood (Lady Antebellum) and Producer Shannon Saunders (India Arie, John Legend and Johnny Lang). The event ended with a 7 song performance featuring all original music created by the students during camp.
