Is It Any Good?

Studies show that students who participate in high-quality music education programs perform better academically. Legendary guitar manufacturer Fender sings the praises of such studies and is setting its sights on getting more girls involved in music programs through its advocacy initiative, GIRL ROCK NATION. Girls who like guitars and music will find some you-go-girl inspiration from the interviews and music clips of the female musicians who are front and center on this site. Girls will find some inspiration from the Women Making History section, which lists such notable feats as the first female inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame. Although it’s a good place to stop and see stories from both successful and start-up musicians, there’s not a lot of muscle or meat behind the music. Like the girls it aims to mold and inspire, is a work in progress that may have energy and spunk but still needs some substance.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
