What Makes A Star? - Program Overview
Within the world of image, hype, and lifestyle, lies the fascinating business of star-making. Spend a week in New York City learning from professional star-makers in the music business.
Today’s music stars have the charisma that wins fans, but they don't make it to the top on their own. WHAT MAKES A STAR? shows you how the music business can make a star. Each day of this exclusive institute has a theme that teaches you about the music business, challenges your ideas, and gives you the tools to use your thinking. You’ll also participate in field trips and interact with industry professionals. Applicants do not need to be musicians to apply.
Meet people who play different roles in making a star: performer, A&R scout, producer, record label executive, and manager. Work with professionals from the STARPOLISH company, whose guiding principle is "Helping Artists Help Themselves."
There will be two (2) separate sessions in 2013:
The first session will start on July 8 (with a dorm check-in date of July 7) and will end on July 12 (with the students having the option of checking out of their dorms on July 13).
The second session will start on July 15 (with a dorm check-in date of July 14) and will end on July 19 (with the students having the option of checking out of their dorms on July 20).
All participants will be housed in unadorned dormitory bedrooms in multi-bedroom suites. Each suite typically has two or three bedrooms. Each bedroom has two or three beds and is furnished with a bed, desk,dresser and closet/wardrobe for each guest. If a resident is assigned to a single bedroom, he or she will not be assigned a roommate in their bedroom. Each individual suite has a bathroom shared by all occupantsof the suite. There are no kitchens in our facilities used for short-term housing. NYU Summer Housing does not provide in-room telephone, television, or internet connectivity to short-term guests. Linens are provided, students should bring their own towels.
Campus meal plans range from 8 to 12 meals per week and include a card with $30 of Dining Dollars. Click here for more specific housing information.
The cost of the program is $1,190. Housing with meal plans is not included in the program fee.
A great benefit of the Music Business Summer Institute for High School Students is the chance for students to experience life in New York City and Greenwich Village. The cost of living in the city is high. The activities fee students pay for the workshop covers only the primary cost of participating in the evening and weekend events and does not cover personal expenses. Students should budget for enough money to last the entire time they will be participating in the workshop. Students are encouraged to discuss expenses and decide upon a budget with their families prior to arriving in New York City.
Participants must be 16 years old by July 7, 2013 to be considered. Applicants do not need to be musicians to apply.
If you would like to be considered for the workshop, you must do the following:
• Submit a general online summer application
• Pay a $50 application fee (nonrefundable)
• Fill out a workshop questionnaire (select Music Business)
• A letter of recommendation from a guidance counselor that notes the suitability of the student for a program of this nature in New York City
