This is not your ordinary summer camp. These teens got to record and mix bands – both in Blackbird Studio and our Live Facility – do overdubs, "produce" a session, and more. They even learned the Nashville Number System and recorded and mixed each other! Big time fun!

#CAMPINSESSION DAY 1: Some of the best summer camp moments happen spontaneously, like this impromptu after-lunch jam. Camper William Lentz from Pennsylvania said, “You have ALL the gear!” Yes, we do! :) #HighSchoolSummerRecordingCamp

We are totally rocking now!

#CAMPINSESSION DAY 2: They helped set up the studio and tracked a band, but these campers seemed to enjoy tracking and mixing each other the most. 😉 Rock on. 🎸 #HighSchoolSummerRecordingCamp #summercamp

Our Story

The Blackbird Academy’s High School Summer Recording Camps are held at the world-renowned Blackbird Studio in Nashville, TN. High-school age teens (13-19) learn how to make a record where some biggest names in music have been recorded and produced – like Rush, Taylor Swift, Queen, Jack White, and many more. Campers work on the same gear, and in the same studios, professional producers and musicians use every day to make hit records! ABOUT THE CAMPS Students work alongside our amazing pro instructors, as well as special guest musicians, engineers, producers, singers and songwriters to learn about: • The Basics of Audio • Studio/Live Etiquette • Recording and Mixing a Band • Introduction to ProTools and Gear • Setting Up the Session • Talkback and Headphone Mixes • EQ and Effects • Processing Gear • Percussion, Vocal and Background Vocal Overdubs • and much more! Students will receive a download link for sharing the music, video, and photos of their time at The Blackbird Academy Camp. WHO SHOULD ATTEND? High school age musicians, music lovers, band members, home recorders, songwriters, singers and students with a passion for building their music production skills. ### The Blackbird Academy is built on the foundation of Blackbird Studio, the Nashville home to a community of engineers, producers, musicians and technical staff who over the years have taken the art of audio recording to new heights. Blackbird Studio, under the ownership/leadership of John and Martina McBride, has become the leading recording studio in the country. John’s love for audio and education led him to create The Blackbird Academy in 2013.The principles and beliefs that guide the Academy's programs are simple: Challenge and educate students by presenting them with real life scenarios that an engineer/producer would encounter on a daily basis; and train students in studios and labs that are professionally designed for engineers to hone their craft.
