Participate in workshops at GRP on a variety of topics. In our workshops, we’ll dig a little deeper into a particular element of music like loop pedals, or audio recording. We’ll also offer workshops with a social justice curriculum that explore the issues affecting youth in Philadelphia. Fall 2016 workshops will be held on the following Mondays: 10/17, 11/14 and 12/12 from 5 – 6:30 pm.
GRP has ongoing performance opportunities for all GRP youth as well as regular program showcases in December and May. All students enrolled in fall programs are expected to perform in the Winter Showcase on Friday, December 16.
GRP Programs are open to all girls and trans youth, regardless of ability to pay. We use a sliding scale model, which we feel allows all families and caregivers to determine their own payment amount. Tuition begins at $10/month.
