MusicHub Launches Empowering Women* Masterclass and Mentorship Program
MusicHub Launches Empowering Women* Masterclass and Mentorship ProgramSeptember 15, 2023
MusicHub is a Berlin-based digital music platform that offers tools and solutions for distribution, promotions, rights and more, created in 2020 by the German rights collection society GEMA (“Society for musical performing and mechanical production rights”).
This Autumn, MusicHub is launching its Empowering Women* in Electronic Music campaign – which involves a series of free web masterclasses from a selection of female* mentors all with established careers within the music industry.
The aim of the classes is to empower emerging female* artists with guidance on how to elevate their careers to the next level, raising profile and developing new income streams. Each session will cover a range of areas, from confidence and mindset, to navigating the industry and honing in on the production process.
“With the program, our aim is to provide women with a toolkit so that they can empower themselves and support each other in the electronic music scene in the long run […] We want to raise awareness for the disparities in the music industry among all stakeholders and across all genders – so that not only women* empower women*, but everyone contributes to a gender equal industry.” – Ariane Petschow, MusicHub
The mentors who have been invited by MusicHub include the internationally respected artists Anja Schneider and Camea, product manager, coach and facilitator Emilie Lindström, and lead software engineer and label manager Aarti Kriplani.
Each mentor will give a special masterclass giving insights into their individual careers, highlighting their challenges, successes and learnings moving through the ranks in a male-dominated industry.
Five selected applicants will also get the opportunity to be personally mentored by Anja Schneider and Camea in 1:1 sessions, in-person or online.
There are a total of five hundred places to be allocated to successful applicants for the masterclasses. MusicHub are also offering the first one hundred female* applicants who register for the newly available distribution to Beatport a €48 discount via the MusicHub Essential plan.
Empowering Women* is open to those who define themselves as female, inter*, non-binary, trans* and agender electronic musicians. To register for the masterclasses applicants should fill out the form, and supply any supporting links and material to be considered for mentorship.
The deadline for applications is 24th September (2023), with dates for the masterclasses to be announced in October.
