Music Production for Women offers four full-year scholarships

Music Production for Women (MPW) is offering four scholarship places for female/non-binary individuals to take part in its new, year long Master Your Music program.

The Distrokid, Yamaha Music Australia, Veva Collect and MPW-supported scholarships allow the recipients to access weekly masterclasses in music production, mixing, music marketing, sound design and various other topics.

“I’m so excited about the impact that this program has had on our students’ lives last year, which was the first year we launched it,” said MPW founder, Xylo Aria.

“Most importantly, the confidence in our students, gained through the realisation of producing their own music when previously it was barely within the realm of possibility, has been an absolute pleasure to witness.”

Masterclasses will be taught by experts in their field including UK-based, Ramera Abraham, who has worked with artists including Adele, Stormzy and Little Mix, and US-based artist and producer, Lillian Frances, who has shared a stage with artists such as Sylvan Esso and Shakey Graves.

In addition to the masterclass access, students will also receive monthly group mentoring sessions to help them achieve their music goal for the year and access to a supportive and safe community – with the total value of the program exceeding $9,000.

To participate in the one year, remotely-delivered program, you will need access to a laptop, headphones and a copy of Ableton. Ableton Live Intro will be provided to the scholarship winner, with the option to upgrade this with a special discount.

Applications for the program close midnight GMT on February 6.
