Little in life has such universal appeal as music. Music is the language teens speak they share favourite songs and downloads, look for new artists online, and vote for the next idol on television. It s even possible to upload your mp3 on myspace and be heard around the world! Just for teen girls, Girls Rock! encourages girls to not only love music as a fan, but to enjoy, create and play music as an artist. This how-to handbook for girls 12-15 encourages them to stop sitting on the sidelines and form a band of their own. The author s love for music and for empowering girls comes through loud and clear as she explains everything from finding fellow band members to choosing an instrument, picking a name for the band, holding rehearsals, writing songs, learning to play, handling group dynamics, spreading the word, and much, much more. There s even a section on body image and insecurity when performing in front of people. Worksheets, sidebars, and lists help girls plan and organise their band. Robyn even shares advice and quotes from other female musicians.
