About Music Technology Camp
WPI’s Music Technology Camp is a week-long immersive experience through which middleschool and highschool students learn to use technology to facilitate musicianship. The camp was founded in 2013 by WPI music professor V.J. Manzo who wrote the curriculum with the principle idea that any student, including students without any prior music training, could use technology and technology-based musical instruments to learn how to compose and perform original music. Since that time, the camp has run multiple sessions for students of different ages and experience levels. The camp concludes with a parent-showcase performance during which each student presents one of the many compositions they’ve created during the week.
