Zero Mansplaining

online Guitar and bass lessons for
women and nonbinary folx
FOR MATURE TEENS AND grown ass womxn

A recent study from Fender showed that 50% of all new guitar players are women.  Why then are the most prominent teachers online men? 

 

Why are songs written by women, queer or

non-binary folks hard to find tutorials for online?

 

The answer is simple. 

Our lack of representation in the music industry is an echo of centuries of women and LGBTQ+ peoples' voices being silenced.

We are living in a revolutionary moment herstory. Time to shift from being passive listeners to active players.

 

You are worthy of having more than a nurturing side, becoming a rebel even if it's quietly at home... in your room... with your guitar.

 

It's not going to be a jarring revelation, but a gentle awakening. 

 

Time to co-create the soundtrack for the Great Shift from masculine to feminine and honor our place in herstory.

what makes this different

Playing guitar should relieve stress, not cause it.  When you look at a lot of the other popular programs, it can be an overwhelming sausage fest. 

 

Some key differences are:

  • Genuine connection through discussion.

  • Alternative solutions so EVERYONE can play a song regardless experience.

  • Simple breakdowns of all aspects of a song including solos and singing.

  • Learning HOW to practice.

  • Zero mansplaining.

  • Gentle approach from a like-minded human creates the space for growth.

  • Healing music rituals curated for those who are into that kind of thing.

  • Simple page navigation without a million versions of the same song

  • Motivation to step into your power and use your voice.

  • Big d*ck energy without a giant phallus.

  • A supportive and encouraging femme-centric community.

WHO DA FUQ IS KRYSTLE BALLER

Music saved my life. I grew up in an abusive environment and after being sexually assaulted as a teen I was ready to end my life.  I clung to music as an escape and dreamed of playing bass and guitar like my heroes. I didn't play music on stage until the age of 24 even though I'd been playing bass secretly in my room for years.

 

It was hard for me to believe that I was worthy of being on stage. All of my childhood musical heroes were men, how could I see myself in a space where I wasn't represented?

I helped co-create a Girls Rock Camp in 2014 and after that incredible experience, I started a program just for womxn, called Lady Rockstars.  We form bands, play open mics together and participate in some really beautiful connection activities along the way.  Since it's beginning I've created over 75 all women bands in Charlotte, NC.

One day one of my students told me, "I feel so grateful for this experience and I keep doing this class again and again because there's no where else in the world I can have this."

Those words inspired me to take my in-person classes into an online format.  I had already been making YouTube videos for my students so the back-content was there. 

In my search for tutorials for songs written by and featuring women on the internet I was often empty handed and I reached a level of "Fuck it, I'll do it myself then."

So here it is.  This thing I've been nurturing.  It's growing like I never imagined it would and I'm honored you are even here, reading these words, in this very moment.

Even if you don't have the means to subscribe, please check out my YouTube channel.  I still provide free content there.  Women led music lessons should be accessible to everyone. 

 

The time of the divine feminine has come.  I am a musical shepard who shows women and gender diverse people that they have everything they need to participate in the shift within them.
