The Collective Sound (TCS) Academy is an international summer music camp that was created exclusively for young musicians ranging in age from 12 to 18 years old. TCS is unique in that every aspect of the program relies on collaborating to create original material (whether writing, recording, making a music video or performing) as part of the three or six week summer music camp. While creative collaboration through music is at the forefront of the program, supplemental workshops and field trips spotlight music technology, production and management to give young musicians a fully immersed look into all aspects of creating music and the music industry.
For attendees The Collective Sound is not only a summer music academy, it is a life-changing experience.
