HOW YOU GONNA SPEND YO' SUMMER?
As young artists, we are expected to seek out the most valuable experiences to make us stronger and more skilled. Participating in summer programs can take a young artist to the next level. Here is what I look for in a summer program:
Teachers are possibly the biggest reason you'd want to attend a particular program. The chance the study privately with your idol...sounds good to me!
2. Scholarships Offered
If you aren't in the financial position to pay for all that goes into participating in your dream program (transportation, tuition, etc.), then check to see if scholarships are available!
Personally, I love seeing new places, so if I could outside of New Orleans, I would take the opportunity. Plus, it exposes you to different artists from around the country/world!
4. Material Covered/What the Program Has to Offer
The program you're looking at might specialize in something most programs usually don't. That's a good reason to check it out!
If a program has a million success stories or all of your friends have come back from it raving about it, you might want to check it out!
No matter what program you choose to do, make sure you learn as much as you can from each experience!
