WiMN founder Laura B. Whitmore recently penned an article for MI Pro titled, “10 Ways to Get More Girls Playing Guitar.”

In the feature, Whitmore suggests ideas that range from thinking more about the style of guitars available on the market, to teaching girls songs they want to actually learn. Another key factor, Whitmore adds, is that the industry must market towards girl’s parents. She writes, “create a safe space not only for girls to learn, but for them to perform as well. Make sure parents know the goals of the program and the opportunities for self-esteem building involved.”
