As part of a growing, passionate community dedicated to enriching lives, School of Rock believes it is part of our mission to shine a light on the work and legacy of female musicians and songwriters. Female artists have had to fight to be heard alongside their male counterparts. While most are familiar with high-profile female vocalists, there have been far fewer female bands, musicians, songwriters, and producers in the spotlight.
FEMALE ARTISTS HELPED BLAZE THE PATH FOR OTHER MUSICIANS TO FOLLOW
These articles highlight various female musicians whose contributions may have been historically overlooked. Each made significant advances in their respective areas, often blazing a path for others to follow. There is no way to call out every important female musician, but this list is a good start. We will also be highlighting more artists over the coming weeks. You may notice some Black female artists that were featured in our gallery of important Black artists. We felt it was important to include them here as well.
In addition to these articles, we will also be adding new songs and performance show themes featuring female artists to our proprietary curriculum. This will allow our students to learn more about these artists while they perform their music.
These articles were developed and co-written by a dedicated and passionate group of instructors and staff members from our very own schools. School of Rock would like to thank the following individuals for their contributions:
