Institute for the Music Arts Girls Wanna Rock

Oct 1, 2011 9:00 AM, Compiled by Sarah Benzuly

For 10 days in August, 14 girls checked into the Institute for the Musical Arts’ (Goshen, Mass.) Rock and Roll Camp for Girls, a program where they were given an intensive how-to in the recording production arts. Famed mixer Leslie Ann Jones (assisted by Dan Tinen) began with an orientation and dived right into terminology and signal path, where the students checked out mics and mic pre’s, different setup for drums/baby grand/vocals/etc., and began work on recording; each session has an artist, engineer(s) and producer. Within a few days, they’re up and running in the overdub/editing and mix stages. Artwork for the music is created by the attendees, with completion handled by executive director Ann Hackler, where in few hours a complete album is finished. The final mixes are played in the performance area and the girls talk about the songs, their roles and experiences.

“We have many returnees year after year,” says artistic director June Millington. “It’s an experience that they just don’t want to miss. It’s exciting as they work and bond.”
