We’re very excited to be working with Roland and the Girl Scouts of the USA to help inspire and empower girls to ROCK and follow their dreams!

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 17, 2011
Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, the original girl guitar company, has recently joined forces with Roland Corporation U.S. and Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) to support the Girl Scouts Rock! Powered by Roland initiative. The next interactive event designed to inspire and empower girls through music takes place on May 21st in New York City.
Daisy Rock Girl Guitars, who offers a complete line of quality guitars and basses that are specifically designed for girls, is supporting the event through guitar donations for the interactive area, where over 200 Girl Scouts will have the opportunity to hold and play a Daisy Rock guitar. Daisy Rock’s trademark “Slim & Narrow” neck profile is easier for girls with smaller hands to play, and the lightweight bodies are easier and more comfortable for girls to hold. Plus, the guitars look inspiring, and they sound incredible.
The partnership gives girls from 8-14 years of age a hands-on experience playing popular music with modern musical instruments; an important opportunity that fewer girls are receiving due to music budget cuts in schools all over the nation. The fun, interactive curriculum co-developed by Roland and GSUSA aims to get girls pumped up about making music and music education.
Girl Scouts Rock! Powered by Roland is part of the latest Girl Scout leadership journey, It’s Your Story—Tell It!, which uses creative expression to help girls gain a better understanding of themselves and their potential. During the events, parents and troop leaders have the opportunity to participate in Better Life with Music sessions, where they can learn about the latest research and information regarding the benefits of music education in the lives of their children.
“Daisy Rock Girl Guitars is doing whatever it takes to help girls play guitar and enjoy music,” says Tish Ciravolo, Founder and President of Daisy Rock Girl Guitars. “We’re very excited to be working with Roland and the Girl Scouts of the USA to help inspire and empower girls to ROCK and follow their dreams!”
