Music Production for Women: EmpowHer Sound

Free events in New York, Los Angeles, Nashville & Santa Cruz

Music Production for Women free workshops

Music Production for Women (MPW) have announced an upcoming series of free beginner music production masterclasses that will be taking place in four cities across the US. EmpowHer Sound - Live will see the organisation host events in New York, Los Angeles, Nashville and Santa Cruz with the aim of empowering female and non-gender conforming musicians. 

The tour has been organised following a hugely successful event hosted in the UK in 2023, which attracted over 200 artists. The events will be hosted by The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, NYU’s Clive Davis Institute, AB Hillsboro Village and UCSC, and will feature sessions from MPW’s award-winning founder and CEO, Xylo Aria on topics such as beatmaking, audio effects and synthesis.

Luna Sophia, an attendee of last year’s event said: “Incredible experience! Lots of lovely like-minded people attending, and fantastic and knowledgeable professional advice and teaching. If you are a woman who is serious about learning production I 10/10 recommend!” Anette Thomas added: "I'm absolutely blown away at the quality of the workshop and all the content that was provided. I'll be leaving the workshop energised, feeling motivated and knowing I will be supported by a group of like-minded amazing women." 

“When you’re new to the music production space, it can often feel overwhelming to know where to start and how to start building a network. We designed these events to be that perfect first step where artists, particularly women, can get a taste of music production, while making new friends in a safe and encouraging space.” - Xylo Aria, Founder and CEO, MPW
