Willie Mae Rock Camp for Girls

Willie Mae Music Lab

Willie Mae Music Lab is our  year-round, community music and mentoring program.

For youth programs, students do not need prior musical experience and tuition is sliding scale. All classes are taught by experienced women musicians and educators drawn from the Willie Mae Rock Camp volunteer base.

Gear Loan
The Gear Loan program allows members of our community to rent, at nominal or no cost, music gear to use during the school year. This initiative provides access to musical instruments to girls and women who might otherwise not have instrument for practice, composition, and performance. See our 2017-2018 offerings here.
