Abbey Road Institute Announces Studios 301 Women in Music Scholarship

Women in Music Scholarship


As part of an ongoing commitment and dedication to foster greater gender diversity in the production sphere of the music industry, Abbey Road Institute is proud to partner alongside Studios 301 and APRA AMCOS to offer this scholarship to women who demonstrate their commitment and passion to music who are wishing to undertake formal education.  “We believe the music industry is grossly underrepresented by women and Abbey Road Institute and our partners hope to change the perception of the male dominated music industry, the introduction of this scholarship brings with it the hopes of attracting more women into the industry thus creating a more diverse industry in the future.” Paul Ledingham, CEO Abbey Road Institute Melbourne.  

“As an industry leader I think it’s important we acknowledge the structural barriers that can impact on the careers of women in traditionally male-dominated pockets of the music industry,” says Lynley White-Smith Mastering Manager of Studios 301.  “We’re really fortunate on a professional and personal level to work with a passionate team who view gender parity as a critical factor for a thriving industry.  Championing this scholarship is illustrative of our commitment to on-going improvement of our systems and policies to support women carving out their careers in audio.”


The scholarship will be awarded to women who demonstrate a commitment and passion to music and illustrate their goals and objectives.  Their potential to be an industry ambassador will also play a part during the selection process.  

Abbey Road Institute’s objective is to provide our students with the highest standard of vocation training mixed with our unique approach to studio and music production education.
