"I traveled alone from California to Colorado because I saw value in the CU Denver Summer Music Industry Program, and my experience far exceeded my expectations. The environment and instructors provided by the camp give students the opportunity to feel something incredible: the feelings derived from accomplishing things they never dreamed they would." -SMIP Singer/songwriter student, Jason Paras.

"I am truly grateful for the amazing opportunity that I was awarded with. I am loving the program so much! There is so much to learn here, and I am meeting a lot of great musicians, great teachers, and inspirational people!" -SMIP scholarship recipient and future CU Denver Music and Entertainment Industry Studies Department student

"SMIP took [my son] out of his comfort zone and stretched his abilities as a young musician...The program provided him with the fresh tools necessary to master the business aspects of the industry and gave him a new depth of understanding about what it takes to succeed. The culture of creativity, encouragement, experimentation, inspiration, fun and business savvy gave him a new, broader opening with which to view his future career and the abundant opportunities available." -SMIP jazz parent

"We were impressed by your instructors' commitment to increasing student knowledge about many aspects of the music industry. The end show was so impressive." -SMIP songwriting parent
