Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

JOHN JAMES, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST
Playfully illustrated and smartly empowering, the nearly 200 pages can take a young girl from rock dreams to putting out a CD and going on tour, holding hands through picking an instrument, writing your first song, forming a band, and booking an all-ages show.

Whether offering advice on how to find the "right" guitar or deconstructing the notion of selling out, Rock 'n' Roll gives girls a much-needed space to redefine themselves by embracing ideas sorely lacking in much of today's young female demographic. The book makes concepts such as self-worth and originality, which are coming-of-age values parents often struggle to convey to their kids, more accessible in the language of power chords and lyrics. Venus magazine

TYEE BOOKS
Do I ever wish someone had given me this book 10 years ago, before I began a lifelong streak of joining crappy Blink-182 cover bands with guys who wanted nothing more than to wank on the guitar. This is an honest, useful how-to for young ladies interested in making innovative rock music in the vein of Sleater-Kinney and old-school Riot Grrl...

    Reviewed by Harmony for TeensReadToo.com

    The actual, real Rock'N' Roll Camp for Girls teaches girls ages 8 to 18 how to make music and start a band in just a short amount of time. And now they're teaching you. <BR/><BR/>ROCK'N'ROLL CAMP FOR GIRLS covers more than what you might think. Not only does it cover all of the things mentioned in the title, it also gives you step-by-step instructions on how to play instruments like the guitar, how to pick one out, self-defense methods, and so many other things. <BR/><BR/>I'm not in a band, I don't plan to start one, and I've never even touched a guitar in my life, but I still thoroughly enjoyed this book. Yes, there were a ton of essays about guitars and other things that were pretty much written in a foreign language to me, but there's so many other articles in this book! I absolutely loved those on writing songs, but I think <BR/>my favorite ones would have to be on self-defense because, let's face it - no matter who you are or where you live, you're most likely going to need to know some of that at least once in your life. <BR/><BR/>So, whether you're in a band, interested in starting one, a genius at playing guitar, or musically challenged, I recommend picking up this book, even if it is only for the self-defense tips!
