Did you know you can start your music career while still in high school, and even middle school? In this bootcamp, students will get a crash course in everything they need to start a career in music. By the end of the bootcamp, students will have all of the tools, skills, and connections they need to start their career NOW! 

Students will learn virtually through Zoom with lectures, presentations, projects/activities, and special guest artist presentations. In the last class, students will meet in person in Dallas at our Common Desk location for final presentations and a pizza party. 


Subjects we will cover include:

  • Branding

  • Networking

  • Marketing

  • Finding and creating opportunities

Additionally, all students will be working on their own professional website that they will present to the rest of the camp on the last class in person. This will be a working, real website that they can use right away for their careers!

 

Note: This camp does not assign "homework," but it is recommended that the students work on their website on their own throughout the week.


In addition to their own working professional website, students will gain:

  • Important and valuable skills and knowledge that often take musicians years of hard work and failure to learn on their own.

  • Tips and tricks to start getting gigs and opportunities now, while still in school.

  • The invaluable benefit of being able to network and connect with Texas Music Institute faculty members, many of whom are part of major US orchestras and institutions.

  • A musical "home" in Texas Music Institute, where students will always be able to come back to for advice, recommendation letters, musical help, etc.
