Girls Rock Camp Foundation

Through lessons, mentorship, positive examples, and the shared experiences of the staff and volunteers, Girls Rock Camps demonstrate that every genre of music, from the heaviest to the most delicate, and every technical job and creative endeavor in the music industry is available to any girl or woman who wants to explore it. By teaching girls that they can be just as comfortable on the stage as in front of it, Girls Rock Camps give girls powerful tools for developing new ideas about who they are and what they can become- in music and beyond.

Victoria Scott - Producer, Recording Artist, Music Blogger
Victoria Scott is a recording artist, music producer, singer-songwriter, and an erudite musician from the Greater Los Angeles Area. She has worked as a songwriter and producer for various artists and herself. Victoria has released two albums and a single in the past year, 2018-2019. Her music is influenced by blues, RnB, electronic, and soul. She fell in love with music when she was about three years old and she would listen to her mom’s old Motown, soul, Mozart, and Sarah Vaughn albums for hours in the living room. Victoria knew when she was four that she wanted to be a musician and performer. Her passion for music/art is why she creates.
Music is life and she believes that it’s ingrained in everyone’s life in some way. Originality comes from the heart and your own experiences, and for Victoria, it comes out in her music. Her focus in life is to keep life in music and keep music in our lives because music has brought many people strength and healing.
