Alpert, Barr and Grant is proud to share “Drum As You Are,” a short film about a Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls in Los Angeles, run by Mona Tavakoli. We are proud that a member of the AB&G family is featured in this film. Jaiya Davis (in denim overalls), daughter of Alpert, Barr & Grant’s own Leah Browitt attends Rock ‘n Roll Camp. We are incredibly proud of Jaiya, the aspiring drummer with tons of personality especially at the 2:00 minute mark of the film.
Through Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls, Mona Tavakoli seeks to empower young women to pursue their musical interests while inspiring self-confidence through music education and teaching them that they can achieve anything. The film also shares Mona’s story of her own difficulties growing up as a female drummer, and the ways she continues to challenge gender norms in the music industry.
