The F-List for Musicthe first directory of its kind to feature up-to-date information on UK-based female and gender minority musicians, songwriters and composers, has teamed up with Help Musicians and Miloco Studios to offer female and gender expansive musicians a whole weekend of immersive studio learning.  

The limited capacity two-day courses, running on select weekends in April in July, are led by performer and producer Dr Isobel Anderson and Dr Catherine Anne Davies (AKA The Anchoress) as the lead producers.

This course will give female and gender expansive creators greater knowledge of a professional studio set up and confidence in articulating ideas and opinions on production within a studio setting to help them retain creative control over their music. As the training and studio team will be all female it will be a comfortable and safe space, givingparticipants a sense of community.
