CAMP / AGES 12-18 / SoundGirls.Org Live Sound Camp for Girls is a one-week camp for young girls & nonbinary folks ages 12-18 (all genders and non-binary people welcome) who want to learn about live music production. The camp curriculum was designed by industry veterans and teaches the skills and technology to run live sound. Working in small, collaborative and hands-on groups, the attendees learn:
- Live Event Safety
- Stage and Audio Terminology
- Signal Flow, Setup and Wire PA Systems
- Input lists, Stage Plots
- Microphones, Wiring Stages
- Line Check, Sound Check, Mixing
- Running and Working a Real Show
The camp helps to empower young women in underserved communities by giving them hands-on training, access to technology, life skills, and most importantly – confidence. Over 70% of girls attending our camps receive scholarships.
Our mission is to create a supportive community for women in audio and music production, providing the tools, knowledge, and support to further their careers.
“It’s a generally accepted statistic that women make up about 5 percent of the audio engineering industry. And while more girls are participating in STEAM classes at a young age, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says women are still underrepresented in many engineering fields. SoundGirls.Org‘s vision is to inspire and empower young women and girls to enter the world of professional audio and music production.
