Femininity is cherished and exploited in the music industry. Producers make their fortunes by selling a version of feminine sexual perfection and we see this through comments such as ‘You sound ok but you just don’t have the right look’ which is mentioned in TV music competitions. The winner goes through a complete make-over with additional air brushing to personify ultimate beauty and achievement. But then, years later, what happens when the menopause hits?
Millicent has gone above and beyond to provide this community and the general public with the best insights and resources to achieve success in the music industry. One of her efforts is the free booklet "Revealed: 25 Secrets Of The Successful Gigging Musician, Singer, Rapper & Spoken Word Artiste", a concise guide full of valuable advise and key points that every aspiring artist in the world of music should know.
The day has arrived! 'Time For My Music' has just opened for membership applications, now you too can join our community of supportive women in music to advance in your career with all the resources, guidance and energy you could wish for.
We welcome these news and hope they give a boost to all our brass and wind interpreters, who have had a very hard time these past months. May we meet on stages again soon!
As you know, our latest workshop took place online through the span of several weeks, as opposed to our regular face to face one day events. One of the results of the workshop was the community group, which has remained active after the masterclasses were done and has provided a space to our members to communicate and collaborate. If you are wondering how to have access to this group if you don't have it, or whether it will continue active, keep reading!
Starting today, we are going to make a monthly recap of Millicent's podcast so newcomers can have a good overview of what has been covered so far, people who dropped the podcast at some point have an easier time coming back, and regular listeners have an index to locate their interests in a faster way.
Have you thought about making a livestream, but you don't know where to start? Well, in this episode, Millicent walks you through the basic equipment you need and how to use it to get a nice and enjoyable livestream for you and your fans:
Gunhild Carling is a Swedish jazz performer who seems to be a master in every instrument you need to know for the genre. Even beyond that, she is able to bring unexpected twists to it, causing delight and surprise alike. Here, for example, she rocks a swing tune using... bagpipes?!
Our member Janice was so kind to share with us a general reflection about our Cafemnee's Online Workshop, which she attended during the month of April.
We had a total of four sessions in our first online Cafemnee workshop. It was quite a new experience for everybody, and we are glad to say all the attendants and instructors tackled the challenge with enthusiasm and confidence, resulting in a great learning process and a lot of fun!
