NEW WEBSITE COMING 2022

WE ROCK THE SCIENCE OF SOUND AND THE ART OF DEEP LISTENING.

Willie Mae Rock Camp (WMRC) is a nonprofit music and mentoring program dedicated to empowering girls and gender-expansive youth. Our programs explore the intersection of music, technology, and experimentation to spark curiosity and creative exploration through a social justice lens. 


We seek to lift the voices of those who have historically been silenced, and our programs directly address opportunity gaps in electro-acoustic music education and technology pathways for underrepresented young people.
