WILLIE MAE ROCK CAMP FOR GIRLS - songwriting workshops

For seven years, I created curriculum and taught songwriting workshops for Willie Mae Rock Camp (WMRC), a non-profit music and mentoring program that empowers girls and women by encouraging them to explore self-expression through music. The workshops, which I taught at WMRC's week-long summer camp sessions for girls ages 4-18 as well as weekend sessions for women 18+, introduced basic songwriting concepts and lyric writing strategies while encouraging creative collaboration. In addition to leading the Songwriting Workshops and mentoring interns to co-lead with me, I also served as a Band Coach during camp sessions and in WMRC's after-school program, coaching groups of four to six girls to learn instruments, work together as a band, write a song, create band merchandise, and perform a concert.
