They range in age from 10 to 15, and they've been performing together for more than two years already.

"At first we were just playing for fun but then we said no, this could be a really good opportunity to do something good," the group's middle child and drummer, Paulina, told BuzzFeed News.

The girls practice for three hours each day, making original music and covers.

"It's always practicing first, and then homework," said Daniela, the eldest, who does vocals and guitar. "We also try to hang out with our friends and everything. We manage."

They've tackled Metallica's "Enter Sandman."

The sisters set up a GoFundMe campaign so they can attend a summer program at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Expenses for all three girls could run about $30,000 for tuition, travel, boarding and food.

"Going there, everyone would appreciate what we do," Paulina said. "Our music teacher has told us that it’s a really good school and you have to be the best to go there."

The Villarreal girls want to keep learning while surrounded by like-minded people because not everyone they've met supports their passion.

"Sometimes people think it’s kind of impossible we play rock because we are girls and we are young," Daniela said.
