With Girls Rock! camps already rocking cities around the world, WAM are absolutely thrilled to announce we’ll be bringing the much-loved program to WA in January 2019!
Girls Rock! is a week-long day camp that aims to empower young female, trans, and gender diverse people through music and education. Over the course of the week, campers will hone skills on their instrument of choice (guitar, bass, drums or vocals), join a band with other campers, write a song together, and then perform at a Girls Rock! showcase on Saturday. Daily creative and empowering workshops, as well as lunchtime performances by local musicians, will also be included in the program.
The program tackles the issue of gender imbalance in the music industry with a focus on the key areas of creativity, positivity, community, and empowerment.
WHEN: Monday 14 – Saturday 19 January 2019
WHERE: Perth, WA – venue to be confirmed
WHO: Open to female, trans, and non-binary people aged 11-17 with existing experience in either guitar, bass, drums or vocals.

WA’s first Girls Rock! the program will be spearheaded by Perth teacher and local musician Em Burrows, who said, “I have heard so many established female musicians saying that they wish they had something like Girls Rock! when they were starting out as songwriters and performers! Girls Rock! is such a great program and a great way for Perth to nurture its next generation of musicians. It gives young people the chance to learn from experienced musicians and industry personnel in such a welcoming environment. I’m so excited to work with WAM to get this program off the ground!”
