This will be my ninth summer working at Girls Rock Camp in Austin. Over the years I’ve been a band coach, taught bass class and guitar class, and taught workshops on music video production and recording. I’ll be working at three camps this summer. It’s an awesome experience watching these kids blossom in a week’s time and become rock stars before your eyes.
This summer’s camps:
- Session 1: June 22-27
- Session 2: July 13-18
- Session 3: August 3-8
From the Girls Rock Austin website:
Girls Rock Camp is a day camp exclusively for girls ages 10 to 17. Qualified counselors will instruct campers in guitar, bass, drums, keyboards, or vocals. Armed with fresh, enhanced skills, campers will form bands and learn to write original songs together to perform at the camp’s finale. No prior music experience is necessary!
Girls attend workshops each day. Workshop examples include:
- Women in Music History
- Communication and Team Building
- DJ skills
- Recording with GarageBand
- Band Art
- Gender and Identity
- Music Video
- Music Blogging
