Women in Film Music

My PhD coursework in Business Marketing led me to the conclusion that women are not reaping much financial rewards from composing film music. At http://www.wijsf.com/mission.htm, it is our mission to promote women musicians, globally. ¬†We have produced 4 compilation CDs of women’s music.

Perhaps, these reports from RB’s Stage 32 News, on women in film will back up my conjecture that there are great opportunities for women in the film music industry:

What’s the value of being a musician?

On Friday, I had a conversation with the son of a well-known percussionist in Miami. This young man’s career path was toward financial planning. His aspiration was to be a doctor, although he’d spent his youth pursuing music with his father. He’d watched quietly, while his father struggled with the disparity of income suffered by so many musicians.

Tachaka told me that, after being successful in investment banking and other financial endeavors, he realized that, if he had to do it all over again, he would have been a musician.

“It’s all B.S.,” Tachaka assured me, “but music is real!”

What do you see as the value of being a musician?
