Excited to announce I’ll be part of the first Girls Rock! WA camp, happening 14-18 Jan 2019. Very proud to see this happening in Perth – I know that when I was a teenager, it felt isolating being an aspiring woman guitarist. I couldn’t even name a woman guitarist back then, and for a long time I felt like I had to constantly prove that I was a worthwhile musician in a sea of male-dominated voices.
The website says it best about the camp:
Originating in the US, the much-loved Girls Rock! program is a week-long day camp of instrumental instruction, band rehearsals, workshops, and fun activities designed to empower and inspire aspiring young female, trans, and non-binary musicians in a safe and nurturing environment. The inaugural Girls Rock! WA camp will feature a range of expert-led workshops on topics such as performance skills, interviewing techniques, and managing your creativity, alongside performances from amazing local artists to keep campers motivated and inspired throughout the week.
Applications are now open for girls 11-17 years – apply here!
