Music Production for Women

Posted by APATA Published By Music Production for Women | Jan 7, 2024

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.

The aim – 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 with the aim to improve gender diversity in music, with classes open to everyone to attend.
Founded by Xylo Aria, music producer and award winning founder of Music Production for women, Xylo built MPW reflecting on her own experiences as a female artist. She was determined to create a platform to benefit other women taking their music career into their own hands, which she wished existed for her when she started. Since starting MPW, Xylo has been named a Top 50 East London Innovator, been included on the SheSaidSo Alt 100 Power List and partnered with numerous global brands on projects and events including Distrokid, Focusrite, Ableton, Abbey Road Studios and many more. In addition to her work with MPW, Xylo is also a Director and Treasurer for the Music Producers and Engineers’ Guild of Australia.
