Instrument Lessons

Campers may choose to learn guitar, bass, drums, keyboard or DJ track. Girls Rock Detroit will provide every student with an instrument to play throughout the camp week, free of charge, though campers are welcome to bring their own. There is NO experience required to participate, and we absolutely encourage the girls to try new instruments. Instruments are assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis. Group classes average an overall 4:1 student-teacher ratio.

 

Band Coaching

Each afternoon, campers utilize the skills learned in instrument lessons during band practice. Bands are assigned on the first day of camp to an appointed band coach and counselor, and spend the remainder of the week working together to write an original song. Each band attends all workshops together and participates in various team-building activities throughout the week.

 
Workshops

Campers participate in two different workshops each day hosted by local guest speakers to build experience, teamwork, and self-esteem. Workshops may cover a wide range of subjects, including vocal technique, recording, managing equipment, body confidence, self defense and women's rock history. Activities like making buttons, zines and t-shirts are fun ways to engage campers in the band experience.

 

End-of-Camp Extravaganza!

At the Saturday showcase, each band will perform their original songs on stage for their friends and family, experiencing what it is like to play in a professional setting at the Detroit Institute of Music Education (DIME) in Detroit.
