Music Production for Women To Hold Free London Masterclass

Music Production for Women (MPW) has announced a full day of free music masterclasses in London for female and non-gender conforming musicians on July 16.

The event, titled ‘Master Your Music - Live’, will be held at the University of Westminster and will feature sessions with the likes of MPG award-winning producer, Charlie Deakin-Davies, Ableton Certified trainer and Youtuber, LNA, MPW’s award winning founder and CEO, Xylo Aria, with more teachers to be announced.

To ensure accessibility, the event, backed by Sonnox, Distrokid, Ableton, Session and Songtrust, will be free for anyone to attend who secures early bird tickets prior to 30 June 2022.

A previous online version of the Master Your Music event which took place in January 2022 attracted over 1,600 registrants from over 120 countries.

An attendee of the January event, Andrejka Zupancic, commented that it had been a “breakthrough point; I always wanted to get involved into music production and this session was so important for me".

I’m hoping we can inspire any attendees who may have wanted to produce but felt intimidated by it, to take their first steps in the field. MPW's CEO, Xylo Aria

The day will run from 10am to 4:30pm and will feature seven in-person workshops on a variety of topics such as the basics of music production, sound-design and mixing, as well as music marketing, PR and songwriting workflow.

“I’m hoping we can inspire any attendees who may have wanted to produce but felt intimidated by it, to take their first steps in the field,” said Aria. “I know having an event like this available when I first started would have made production feel a lot more accessible to me.”

MPW is an organisation that began three and a half years ago that was included on the Top 50 Innovators of East London list in 2020 and earned Aria a place on the She Said So Alt Power List. The organisation has run workshops and courses to over 6,000 musicians from over 120 countries and continues to grow steadily.

The organisation was created with the aim of empowering women in music technology and prides itself on not only providing practical and actionable educational content, but also on harbouring a safe and encouraging space to learn in.

Free tickets for the event will be available here until the venue capacity has been reached.
