About Music Production for Women

Music Production for Women was started with the hope to encourage and empower more women in the field of music production and technology, areas in which women are currently heavily under-represented.

Our aim is to give female musicians the skills necessary to take on the music industry with confidence and to help and guide them through every step of the process through providing education, community support, visible role models and encouragement.

Since it's inception in 2019 MPW has delivered classes to thousands of students across numerous countries across the globe.

Although our aim is to improve gender diversity in music, our classes are open to everyone to attend.

Workshops & Events

MPW run periodic free and low cost music production workshops to empower women in music technology. Please join our mailing list to stay up to date with our latest events.

Female music producers
If you are brand new to music production and are feeling intimidated or unsure about where to start, this introductory session is the best place to take your first steps. During the hour long session, you will be learning from scratch how to navigate a production software and all the functions you will be using on a day-to-day basis as a music producer.

We will then break down the production of a major pop song and together build it up from scratch so that you can learn some of the most simple and effective tools that many major artists are using in their music-making today.

"Xylo Aria has created a learning environment where women can find support and reliable information in a comfortable setting. For women who might feel they don’t belong in the “Boy’s Club” of music production, the benefits of a female-centric space cannot be overstated"

"I wish that 'Music Production for Women' had been around when I was starting out in 1978! A life in the arts is a life in problem solving. So it really helps when we can learn how others have solved some of the problems that we encounter in the music business. And it's nice to compare notes on our tools and techniques in a forum where no false assumptions are made about our aptitude for tech topics!"
