Sony Music Publishing held a songwriting and composing workshop this weekend for young girls as part of a partnership with Girls Make Beats.

With the support of SMP songwriters Crystal Nicole, Caroline Ailin and Sarah Aarons, as well as Bleeding Fingers Music composers Laurentia Editha, Adam Lukas, Christian Lundberg, Anze Rozman, Kara Talve and Denise Santos, 15 students collaborated to create an original song and video score centered on female empowerment.

The workshop was part of a series of composition programs that aim to advance the next generation of songwriters, composers, producers, DJs and audio engineers.

Said Sony Music Group EVP Philanthropy and Social Impact Towalame Austin, “Working with Girls Make Beats gives SMG the opportunity to further its commitment to inspire and prepare future music leaders through the creative lens of our very own songwriters.”

Founder and president of Girls Make Beats Tiffany Miranda said, “Songwriting and composing are viable career pathways that have traditionally been male-dominated fields. We are both honored and excited to have our girls mentored by the inspiring industry professionals at Sony Music Publishing and Bleeding Fingers to create a pipeline for the next generation of music makers.”
