As summer activities begin to wind down, some students are jamming out the last stretch.
Syracuse University's Music Technology Access Project is underway.
It's a program where graduate students from the music education department teach campers with intellectual and developmental disabilities about the recording industry.
The two-week camp provides hands-on experience in studios, allowing campers to record tracks and master the sound boards.
This week, students recorded a song with local band, Sophistafunk.
"For all the campers, this is the highlight of their year. They look forward to it all year, the lead up to knowing when the date is approaching that they get to get into the studio, relearn all the equipment, anticipating having new campers come into the program. There's a portion of the campers that are new every year and then to have incredible music come out of it at the end that really moves your mind and your heart," said James Abbott, Syracuse University Professor of Practice and MTAP Director.
The campers also had a chance to record their song together.
The Music Technology Access Project is now in its 7th year.
