At GRCB, music education and performance provide an interactive, hands-on approach to teaching abstract skills like confidence and persistence. By providing opportunities to build musical skills, find and trust their voices, forge positive relationships with peers and mentors, and uncover their potential, GRCB’s programs, including summer sessions and after school programming, have transformed the lives of hundreds of Boston area girls since 2010. nnWhat the girls accomplish musically is remarkable on its own, but the impact of participating in GRCB goes beyond simply receiving music education. We use music and performance as a vehicle to eradicate limiting myths about gender in our society. We create space where girls are encouraged to sing out, speak up, and make a lot of noise. As one of the few organizations providing creative/musical opportunities focusing on the empowerment of girls and community building, GRCB fills an important niche in Greater Boston.
