International Alliance for Women in Music


BEYOND THE NOTES is a webinar series bringing you presentations, workshops, seminars and interactive dialog and performance. 



IAWM works to establish ourselves as a resource to our members, by creating programming, services and opportunities that respond to the needs of our members. We also seek to improve networking and social cohesion opportunities for the large community of women in music. 

Beyond the Notes webinar series brings you presentations, workshops, seminars and interactive dialog and performance. The purpose of the webinars is to provide women in all disciplines in music with information and resources to help develop and further their professional careers. BEYOND THE NOTES is open to the public.

We want to celebrate the contributions you make in your field, and to share your learnings. We are in the midst of planning our 2024/2025 season of sessions. If you are interested in creating and presenting a webinar in the coming months, please contact us at [email protected].
