Sony Music Publishing partners with Girls Make Beats to host songwriting and composing workshop for young women

Sony Music Publishing (SMP) has partnered with non-profit organization Girls Make Beats (GMB) to host a songwriting and composing workshop for young women in music.

The collaboration marks the launch of Sony Music Group’s second annual Beyond The Instrument program, an ongoing initiative “designed to develop the next generation of music industry leaders”, says SMP.

The project is supported by SMP songwriters and members of the Emmy-winning, BAFTA-nominated collective Bleeding Fingers Music.

SMP songwriters involved include Crystal Nicole, Caroline Ailin, and Sarah Aarons, while Laurentia Editha, Adam Lukas, Christian Lundberg, Anze Rozman, Kara Talve, and Denise Santos represented Bleeding Fingers Music.

During the workshop, 15 students who are enrolled in GMB created an original song and video score about women empowerment, says SMP, and provided students with resources and exposure to music professionals across the industry.

The workshop is part of a series of composition programs that aim to highlight the next generation of songwriters, composers, producers, DJs, and audio engineers, says SMP.

The second edition of the Beyond The Instrument program extends SMP’s relationship with Bleeding Fingers.

In 2020, the two establishments created a Screen Scoring Diversity Scholarship for Black composition students within the Screen Scoring Master’s Program at the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music.

The scholarship, which was part of Sony Music Group’s $100 million Social Justice Fund, was organized to expand opportunities for Black composers.

“Songwriting and composing are viable career pathways that have traditionally been male dominated fields.”
