  1. The cover photo of Gayelynn McKinney is credited to Barbara Barefield.
  2. On p. 28 the paragraph should read: Although researchers have explored the phenomenon of the challenges faced by women musicians, very little prior research has shown that women jazz musicians lack the necessary business skills to succeed. The benefit gained from this research study will be utilized to show young women jazz musicians the importance of business education in this $15.5 billion music industry in the United States (Anonymous, 2016).

MWMCOVERFinally, after 10 years of planning, collecting stories, and acquiring advertisers, Musicwoman Magazine is here! The online version will be available for download until the launch: https://issuu.com/joancartwright/docs/musicwomanmagazine2019

The premiere edition features Gayelynn McKinney, our 340th member and the last drummer to perform with the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin! The inside stories are based upon our members’ experiences with the six keys to success for all musicians and entrepreneurs: branding, marketing, networking, teamwork, negotiation, and accounting.

We plan to grow this publication through subscriptions from our members and the general public. We trust you will enjoy the attention paid to women musicians who have dedicated their lives to producing music to live your life by!

The launch was on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 @ 7 p.m.

The 4th Catalog of Women in Arts & Business published on March 7, 2018. We printed 3,000 catalogs and sent copies to advertisers and members for distribution. Ten years ago, our marketing team from Women in Jazz South Florida, Inc. sat at my dining table to discuss the creation of Musicwoman Magazine©®™. We focused on funding this project and the bottom line was a strong advertisement base. Musicwoman Magazine©®™ is an idea whose time has come! Women musicians are upward bound and need vehicles like this for promotion.

The upside of this venture is the printing grant we competed for and won for five consecutive years from Conquest Graphics in Philadelphia, PA. The grants we won ranged from $750 to $5,000, which enabled us to print our catalog for four years and got us to where we could publish a full-sized magazine, highlighting the work of women musicians, globally!
