What's Included

Our Amplify after school program is an 8-week rock band program for teen girls ( but don't let the term rock band scare you off - these girls write whatever genre of music they want to). Students attend instrument lessons, form a band, collaboratively write an original song, record in a professional recording studio, participate in confidence-building workshops, and perform with their band at a sold-out, live showcase in Santa Barbara . The Girls Rock program teaches girls to be confidant in who they are, to know they are enough in all that they do, and to follow their passions -whatever they may be. We recruit instructors from the world's leading music conservatories and while they are extremely talented musicians and teachers - they are even more incredible human beings and mentors. WHO: Girls 13-17 years old. All Instruments provided. WHEN: We offer program on Tuesdays 3:30-6. At the end of each 8-week session everyone will participate in a showcase. *Students are welcome to arrive between 3:30 and 4pm, depending on their school schedules. WHERE: Santa Barbara Jr. High, Room 136

About This Organizer

Girls Rock SB! is an after-school music program and summer camp for girls aged 7-17. Girls learn either guitar, bass, drums, keys, vocals, and introducing: electric violin!

Girls Rock Santa Barbara! is an organization that empowers girls through music. Through music lessons, creative expression, workshops, group activities, and performance, girls learn self-confidence and teamwork.

GRSB challenges gender stereotypes, encourages collaboration and tolerance among peers, and provides a safe and comfortable space for girls of all backgrounds to express themselves. These skills and many others will be ones that help guide these young women throughout their lives.
