Innovative educators Music Production for Women (MPW) are offering four scholarship places for female or non-binary individuals to take part in their upcoming year-long Master Your Music program! The Distrokid, Yamaha Music Australia, Veva Collect and MPW supported scholarships will allow the recipients to access weekly masterclasses in music production, mixing, music marketing, sound design and many more topics.
“I’m so excited about the impact that this program had on our student’s lives last year, which was the first year we launched it,” Melbourne-based MPW Founder Xylo Aria explains. “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 producer Ramera Abraham, who has worked with artists including Adele, Stormzy and Little Mix, and US-based artist & 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, access to a supportive and safe community, and loads more with the total value of the program exceeding $9,000.
Requirements & How To Apply
To participate in the 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 the 6th of February. You can find further details on the program and submit your application form by clicking the link below.
