Girls With Guitars
I developed a program that is targetted towards
getting and keeping girls and women interested in
My program includes private lessons/ instruction, but so much more. Upon registering for my four month program, you will be fast-tracked to success. You will be invited to take part in a monthly meetup where the ten program participants will have a safe space to execute creativity, share talents and struggles, make connections and positively encourage one another to build confidence.
I believe that music is more than just playing an instrument. It is an opportunity to build life skills and develop confidence and leadership.
On top of it all, you will have the chance to take part in a recording session at the end of the program.
This is a great way to hear your own progress. Recording also make great gifts for family and friends!
