Time For My Music

What is ‘Time For My Music’? 

'Time For My Music' is an online private membership group for female musicians (instrumentalists, singers, singer-songwriters, rappers and DJs) who are either:  

  • Returning to music after a break and want to boost their confidence.
  • Music is their hobby but they would like to perform and get paid.
  • Music is part-time and they want help in becoming a full-time musician. 

 

What topics are covered? 

Topics include PA systems, copyright, stage presence, backing tracks, working with Bands, creating an electronic press kit, how to put on an online or live performance, and so on.  Anything the women want to learn.  The women receive an honest and no-holds barred information and guidance on all topics with expert advice and support.

 

How and where are the sessions delivered? 

The online experience happens through Zoom and the women are encouraged to set up a free Zoom account on their device to accommodate this.   

Only registered users have access to the private Group space where the women catch up on workshop video replays; post audio, text and video content and engage in conversations which is available 24 x 7 x 12. 

 

When does it take place? 

The topics are delivered once or twice a month, depending on the content to cover.  It takes place on a Wednesday evening 7.30pm-9pm (UK). 

Also, once a month on a Saturday morning 11am - 1230pm for ‘Drinks, Chill & Chat’, where they talk about their experiences, achievements, share tips and give support. 

 

When was Time For My Music set up? 

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic Millicent ran in-person workshops for women in music under her project 'Cafemnee'. Millicent had to find a way to support the women online as they wanted to leave lockdown Gig ready.  ‘Cafemnee’ was reborn as ‘Time For My Music’ and the online experience made it easier for women to attend irrespective of their location.

 

Can Men join? 

Statistically there are not many women in the music industry and this group is set up to help redress the balance, so unfortunately this is a female only Community.  However other genders do have access to Millicent's Podcast, free resources, coaching, and courses on her website www.successbeyondthescore.com

 

Testimonials

Here is what some of the women are saying about Time For My Music:

For ages I had wanted to buy an amplifier but was not sure what to buy. T4MM had a workshop on amplifiers and now I am the proud owner of a very good amplifier. Other workshops have been on backing tracks and stage performance skills which have been excellent. I have purchased some very good backing tracks and even had one made.

The T4MM showcase was a game changer for me all what I had learnt was put into practice. The audience was wonderful and the feedback was positive. I have also had personal feedback from Millicent on my performance this not only will help me to self-develop but boosted my confidence as well.

T4MM also have a regular chill and chat where we chill and chat and share experiences of life in general.

Come on women come and join us pick up your instrument, sing again. PUSH”

'Time for My Music (TMM) ‘does exactly what is says on the tin’. The group has allowed me to return to my first love and I couldn’t have joined a more supportive group of like-minded women. I lacked a great deal of confidence but was determined to overcome this hindrance. The TMM group has offered me support when I needed it most and has encouraged my development. I now play in 2 bands – one where I am part of the ‘brass section’ and another and that has an ‘all girl’ line-up. Not bad for someone who had no real intention of becoming a performer.'

'The Journey has been a challenging eye opener from preparation to performance. I’m sure you all feel the same. Millicent gave us the foundation’s and fundamentals, through seminars and workshops and we have managed to link the theory to practical'.  

Janice

 

'Being a member of Time for My Music has enabled me to grow in confidence in terms of my musical ability as an amateur saxophonist.  I have also grown in my knowledge and understanding about the more technical aspects improving my all-round performance e.g., use of mics, sound levels/amplification, lighting, appearance, and digital skills, backdrops etc.  This has also increased my appreciation of all musicians and their performances.'

Patricia

 

'With all the above and women joining the community group at varying levels of their musical journeys, what this community group does, and gives me is the time and space to explore, experiment, sharpen, fuse musical ideas with likewise women.  I have grown tremendously in my musical journey and applaud and commend Millicent on her leadership and vision on our behalf.'
