Girls with Groove is a new music workshop hosted by Swedish jazz singer/composer Cecilia Stalin and Finnish drummer Vicky Österberg. The main purpose of the project is to reach gender equality within the music industry in the future. It should be as obvious for girls to play music, write songs, and play in a band, as it is for boys. Todays society deficiencies in different ways to encourage the interest in music for everybody.
Our workshop is aimed at girls, age 13-16, with or without any previous musical experience. It will focus on confidence in a musical environment by trying out new instruments, playing in a band and writing songs all under the guidance of professional female musicians.
