About Willie Mae Rock Camp

Willie Mae Rock Camp empowers girls and gender-expansive youth through transdisciplinary music education programs that combine instrument instruction with creative technology and STEM-based learning. We equip students with the tools and support to develop and amplify their voices and provide hands-on skill building with sound-based technologies to help them thrive as tomorrow’s creative leaders and innovators.

We reach over 600 students ages 10-17 annually at our Brooklyn studio and partner sites throughout NYC through a range of year-round programming, including in-school music education, community workshops, and after-school and summer intensives. Across our programs, students learn how to develop a song and create a musical track; receive hands-on instruction and practice using a range of tech including electronic instruments, recording technology, software, and creative coding; and work together to develop their own collaborative works. Our programs are tuition-free, and we center young people whose voices are underrepresented in both creative and tech fields. To learn more about Willie Mae Rock Camp, visit williemarockcamp.org.
