There’s not a lot of time left for you to join ‘Time For My Music’, our online membership group for the empowering of emerging female musicians. Don’t let this chance pass, you will have access to all our previous workshops and videos, and of course to all our scheduled plans for this round, including info about how to make your electronic press kit, how to get gig-ready and what to get to put together outstanding online performances.
Read what Carlene, member of both Cafemnee and Time For My Music, had to say about her experience in the past year with the group:
I have been attending Millicent Stephenson’s Cafemnee for a while now, which launched my Djembe playing after not playing for approx. 8 years. We were due to have a workshop, but due to the lockdown; Millicent decided to move this online and launched an online women’s music community group (Time For My Music) in September 2020.
By being part of this group, Millicent encouraged us to take our music to the ‘next level’, and to the next level she took us. Once a month, we had a workshop on various subjects to do with the music industry; such as: uploading videos, exploring YouTube (private and public publishing), licensing and distribution, royalties, copyright 101, PA systems and microphones, lighting (which has led me to purchase equipment to enhance my Djembe playing i.e., an audio interface; had never heard of such a thing, let alone purchasing one before this group!). We addressed backing tracks, acappella, back drops, benefits of being a member of the Musicians Union, and so much more over the past eight months.
We also had once a month “Drinks, Chill and Chat” (DCC) whereby the women as part of T4MM can come and spend an hour and half bringing a drink of their choice and just ‘chill and chat’ about anything and everything; and then we focus in our musical interludes, etc.
As a result of one of these DCC, Millicent posed the question – let us have an online musical event, yet again building, increasing our experience and exposure with our own music, musical instruments, etc. This really allowed us to see what it takes behind the scenes to bring a performance to fruition. Hence, and event on 3rd July 2021.
With all the above, and women joining the community group at varying levels of their musical journeys, what this community group does, and gives me, is the time and space to explore, experiment, sharpen, and fuse musical ideas with likewise women. I have grown tremendously in my musical journey and applaud and commend Millicent on her leadership and vision on our behalf.
Many thanks Millicent and to the women of T4MM.
Onward and UPWARD!!!
