LOS ANGELES, CA – August 2010 - Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, the original girl-guitar company, presented a girl guitar day on August 4 to Girl Scouts, grades 2-6, during the week-long Musicpalooza camp held at the Museum of Making Music in Carlsbad, CA.
The girl guitar day began in the Daisy Rock Girl Guitar museum exhibit with Daisy Rock Founder and President, Tish Ciravolo, showing the Girl Scouts her signature Daisy electric guitar that was inducted in 2006 as a landmark, culture-changing music product innovation. The campers learned about what makes the guitar a “girl guitar”—the “Slim & Narrow” neck that fits girls hands and is easier to play, the lightweight design that makes the guitar easier for girls to hold and play, and colorful inspiring designs. Campers then gathered around tables to draw their very own girl guitars. “Spending the day with the campers reminds me why I wanted to start Daisy Rock in the beginning—it’s all about inspiring girls to play guitar and enjoy music,” commented Ciravolo. “They were so inquisitive as to the different parts of a guitar, and the excitement on their faces as they created their own guitar on paper was just incredible.”
The day concluded with a 2-hour class on how to play the guitar, conducted by professional guitar teacher and Daisy Rock endorsed artist, Nikki O’Neill. Each girl received their own Daisy Rock guitar to play during the class and learned to play songs such as “Happy Birthday” and even the classic riff to “Smoke on the Water.” “I was really impressed with the girls’ progress with just one class, “stated O’Neill. “Helping girls to play music on the guitar at such a young age is an amazing thing. There was nothing like this when I was learning, and I really wish there was. It builds such a sense of accomplishment and camaraderie, which is important when taking on a new instrument.”
