About

Each year, Girls Rock! Chicago debuts 40 brand-new bands at a showcase of original music at Thalia Hall.

Want to mentor a group of girls between the ages of 8 and 16 as they write, practice, record, and perform an original song?

Volunteer as a BAND COACH at Girls Rock! Chicago's day camp, Monday, August 8-Friday, August 12, plus the showcase on Sunday, August 14. Band practice is Monday-Friday from 1:30-3 or 3-4:30, depending on the age of your band.

As a Band Coach, you'll work with a volunteer Counselor to guide your camper band through daily band practice. The Band Coach’s primary role is to help a band of campers write a song, which will be performed at the End-of-Camp Extravaganza. Band Coaches help the campers out with everything from plugging in to singing in tune, from the early songwriting stages to their final dress rehearsal. Band Coaches should have some experience playing a traditional rock instrument (guitar, bass or drums) in a band and, ideally, some songwriting experience.
