During the week, girls receive instrument instruction (bass, guitar, keyboard, percussion) form a band, write an original song, experience running lights and sound, and perform at a showcase. We provide a supportive community that encourages collaboration, confidence, leadership skills, problem solving, and creative self-expression through hands-on music education and performance.
