The Orchard and Magic Star, our children’s and family music division, are excited to announce our partnership with Girlguiding for the launch of a new pack of activities involving music industry education.
Girlguiding is a UK youth organization dedicated to community building and personal development for girls ages 4-18. Through programming and activities, the organization empowers girls – whose members are called “Girl Guides” – to find their voice, discover the best in themselves, and make a positive difference in their community.
We are proud to have contributed to the development of four new activity programs on the topic of music! Girls in each age range have the opportunity to learn more about the roles within the music industry: ‘Music Brand Masters’ for Rainbows (ages 4-7), ‘Brand Your Band’ for Brownies (ages 7-10), ‘Music Video Magic’ for Guides (ages 10-14), and ‘Project Festival’ for Rangers (ages 14-18).
Since the program launched 5 years ago, 7 million Girl Guides UMAs (unit meeting activities) have been completed across memberships. We hope this new activity pack can spark intrigue and encouragement for young girls everywhere. With the right tools and programming, girls from a young age can know that a career in the music industry is not just a dream, but entirely attainable.
