Rain City Rock Camp for Girls AMP at MoPOP is an advanced music program for female-identified teens* ages 14-19 with prior music experience. Teens come for a week-long intensive study of playing in a band, songwriting, music business, and empowerment workshops, off-site trips to studios and venues, and more! At the end of the week, participants get to record their original song with their band in a professional studio.

The workshops and classes in this program are geared towards a deeper musical understanding of writing within a band and being successful as a long-term band. Participants need to have prior music experience on guitar, bass, drums, or vocals. Instruments will be provided.
