Daisy Rock Guitars and Berklee College of Music Announce Mother/Daughter School of Rock
Just in time for Mother’s Day and in celebration of moms and daughters everywhere, Daisy Rock Guitars and Berkleemusic, the continuing education division of Berklee College of Music, have announced the creation of the first-ever Mother/Daughter Online Guitar Course, set to begin on July 2nd, 2007. This is the first online guitar course developed to support Daisy Rock and Berkleemusic’s new partnership, which aims to provide innovative new ways for women to learn how to play guitar and to empower women through music. The ‘Mother/Daughter School of Rock’ course, Classic Rock Guitar, opens for enrollment today, with the course beginning on July 2nd, 2007.
This online guitar course is a great way for moms and daughters to learn to play guitar together this summer in a supportive and collaborative online environment, from anywhere in the world. The course will be taught by Berklee professor Robin Stone who herself comes from a musical family. “My mother has always been my greatest musical influence,” says professor Stone. “She was gigging while pregnant with me, so for as long as I have been aware of anything, she has been providing me with music, one of life\'s greatest gifts. Thanks Mom!"
Berkleemusic’s online music teaching platform presents a perfect environment for learning that encourages participation and removes the social pressures and dynamics that often occur in traditional one-on-one or classroom instruction. These online guitar courses combine direct access to Berklee’s guitar faculty, along with interactive Flash demonstrations, QuickTime movies, downloadable Mp3 files, and tablature to produce a unique educational experience where women can freely collaborate and thrive with like-minded musicians from around the world. Notable Berkleemusic online guitar students include Cathy and Kristen Henderson, founders of the popular band Antigone Rising.
Mothers and daughters can sign up now by calling Berkleemusic’s Student Advisors at 1.866.BERKLEE. All students who enroll by July 2nd will also receive a huge package of goodies and discounts compliments of http://www.daddario.com " target="_blank">D\'Addario, http://www.alfred.com " target="_blank">Alfred Publishing, and http://www.daisyrock.com " target="_blank">Daisy Rock Guitars.
Making music is beneficial to people of all ages. It positively affects children in their development of cognitive skills; teens by building confidence and connecting them socially; adults through reducing stress; and seniors by “exercising” the brain. Research shows that strumming the guitar is not only cool, it also: builds self esteem, creates social connections and bonds, inspires creativity and increases productivity.* “Mother/Daughter School of Rock” classes help families connect, and encourage and enlighten women and girls of all ages to claim their voices and gain confidence through creative self-expression.
“Mother/Daughter School of Rock” classes are a great way for moms and daughters to find their voices, live out loud together and spend time with each other doing something fun that will last a lifetime. As a mother of two young daughters, I am thrilled to have created this cool class with Berkleemusic, and hope that it will empower future generations of girls to rule the world!”
