‘Gender Disparity in UK Jazz – A discussion’ is the new book by Sammy Stein, in which she provides a clear vision of the current state of the jazz music scene in terms of gender equality. We recommend it to understand the circumstances and be able to think of informed solutions to move forward. You can find it in Kindle at Amazon UK or elsewhere at just £2.00 as an eBook, £15 as a paperback.
Our next Drink, Chill and Chat event on the community group Time for My Music will take place on Saturday 31st October, from 10:00am to 11:30am. It is a Zoom meeting in which the members have the opportunity to catch up, share experiences and comments, and overall have a friendly conversation about music and the music industry while enjoying a hot beverage.
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?
There’s a new website that puts together all the resources made by our director Millicent Stephenson to help you out in your music career.
One of the perks of being a member of ‘Time For My Music” is that you can vote every month for a topic of your interest to be discussed in the Zoom forum with experts. September’s chosen theme was ‘how to improve your stage presence’ and we are going to talk about it on Wednesday 7th October from 7:30pm to 9:00pm.
