Women’s History Month: Excellent Sheet Music by Female Composers & Artists

March is Women’s History Month, a time to celebrate and recognise the contributions of women throughout history. In the music industry, women have made significant contributions as composers, songwriters, performers, and more. However, they have often been overlooked and undervalued in a male-dominated industry. In this post, we’ll explore the importance of promoting, supporting and showcasing some of our favourites.

The History of Women in Music

Women have been making music for centuries. However their contributions have often been overlooked or minimised. Despite the barriers they faced, many women have still managed to make significant contributions to music history. From Hildegard of Bingen in the Middle Ages to contemporary artists like Beyoncé and Taylor Swift, women have played a vital role in shaping the music we know and love today.

Why Promoting Sheet Music by Women Composers and Artists is Important

Playing sheet music by women composers and artists offers several benefits. For one, it helps to diversify the music industry and offer more representation for women in music. By featuring more sheet music by female composers and artists in music stores and online marketplaces, we can encourage more young women to pursue careers in music and empower them to create their own unique voices. Some notable female composers and songwriters include Clara Schumann, Amy Beach, Billie Holiday, Joni Mitchell, and Adele.

Repertoire from women composers and artists offers a unique and varied selection of music for musicians of all levels and styles. Therefore, we can help create a more inclusive and diverse industry that empowers and inspires future generations of musicians. So this Women’s History Month, why not explore our selection of sheet music by women composers and artists? Discover the incredible talent and contributions of female musicians throughout history!
