The Focus of Our Efforts



The Dreaming Girls Music Conference focuses on engaging female musicians with social issues through mentorship and interactive sessions developing personal, social and musical skills. This conference culminates in a capstone project which will be presented at a gala dinner. Three days of intense self-reflection, societal analysis, musical understanding igniting opportunities for youth led social change. We will have music therapists, inspiring industry professional and strong female leaders come in to lead sessions. Moreover, music educators will give group lessons and 1 on 1 sessions to the participants.
