Orlando SoundGirls Susan Williams, Cristina Sigala, Roey Lee and myself Tzu-Wei Peng were invited by Rachael and Jamie O’Berry from Girls Rock Camp St.Pete to provide a workshop about basic live sound techniques and what to expect in production. We adjusted the content of workshops for different ages of girls covering all the positions behind a gig, signal flow, what is feedback and how to avoid it, to production dress code, tools and how to work as a team, etc.
The main objective of Girls Rock Camp is to promote self-confidence, creativity, and a sense of community amongst girls and young women through music.
This is our very first time got involved with Girls Rock Camp in Florida, and we had a blast! The girls were eager to learn and paid attention during the class. We have heard that they were taking things they learned from the workshop and putting it to use in their band practice. They are the future kick-ass women in the music industry!
Beckie Campbell started Orlando SoundGirls Chapter this year, and she has been organizing events and meet ups to encourage more women in Florida who are interested in sound to network. We will keep this community growing and empower more women in sound like we did with Girls Rock Camp!
