The Internet For Women In Music (and those curious about them)

Even though I am starting from ground zero, there may be some information and addresses in this flyer that could be of interest to major computer mavens.

For Starters:

Get a computer. Get a modem. Get the software programs Eudora, in order to send email effortlessly, and Netscape, to browse sites on the Internet and do research. You'll also want NewsWatcher, if you have a Mac, to work with newslists. Next, find a provider of Internet services such as TunaNet in NYC or Interport (voice: 212-989-1128) or America Online. Arrange for unlimited access per month to surf the web (approximate cost is $20/month). You might want to get a book or have a little help from a knowledgeable person .

Depending on what computer you have, try The Internet Starter Kit for the Macintosh, 4th Edition (Adam Engst, Hayden Books) or The Internet Starter Kit for Windows, 2nd Edition (Adam Engst, Hayden Books) or The Internet Starter Kit for Windows 95 (Adam Engst, Corwin S. Low, Hayden Books). Then collect email addresses, send email, join and participate in news lists, and visit web sites.

Email addresses are like phone numbers. They have to be perfect to work. How do you get one? Call or write your friends and ask. Notice that an email address, for example Monique: begins with a few letters chosen by Monique, often including parts of the person's name, then there is an @ sign which means "at", then there is a provider of Internet services (in this case it is dorsai), and then either edu (for a school), org (for a non-profit organization), com (a commercial company), gov (government) etc. A web site (aka: page or home page) address starts with "http://" as in When Netscape opens, there is a place to type in a web address. Do that and hit return and in a few seconds the web site will appear on your monitor. That's all there is to it. Just do it...

Everytime you go to a place on the Internet that you like or think you might want to return to, save the URL (the address where you are at the time) in your bookmarks file. Web sites are always adding more features. Bells & whistles are in the works at every site listed.

Also, things change quickly. So if some of the addresses I have listed are now incorrect, try going to one of the larger sites and seeing if they are linked to the person, place or thing that you seek. Then start sending email until you find someone who knows the answer. Most people on the net are very helpful.

Some Web Sites

Whenever you are on a web page, click on everything that is a different color and on all the buttons that show categories of materials and see if it takes you somewhere else. You can always go back to the page you were on by clicking the BACK button. Some pages have sounds or parts of scores on them that have to be read by special programs. Usually the page itself will tell you what you need to see/hear special things. Music and pictures take seconds or minutes to appear. So be patient, if you want to do anything on a page except read text.

  1. To see the catalogue of compositions written by New York Women Composers, Inc.'s members (large and currently incomplete) go to:

    This site also includes some biographical information, sources for obtaining the scores listed, and information on joining the organization and having your scores listed here. For those with email-only provider accounts, to join, email (Eva Wiener).

  2. To see the web site of the International Alliance for Women in Music (IAWM), go to:

    This is a terrific resource and includes many areas of interest, including Syllabus at:

  3. In order to have your own web page, either hire someone to do it (unless you know HTML, a computer language) or ask The American Music Center to help ( email: or or write them at 30 West 26th Street Suite 1001 New York, NY 10010-2011 or call them at (212) 366-5260) Their WWW Site is and it even has pictures. They will do it as inexpensively as possible. Here is their announcement regarding how to arrange it.

    The American Music Center is happy to announce a new service for our membership. For the first time, individual members will be able to have their own personal suite of World Wide Web Pages at the American Music Center site on the Internet. The Center's pages are already receiving thousands of hits each day. This gives both composer and performer members an ideal opportunity to make themselves and their music known to the performers, presenters, and publishers from all over the world who visit us electronically.

    For a one-time fee of $300 (and your continuing membership), we will program, link, and provide the storage space for a personal suite of pages on the World Wide Web. The information we will publish for you can include descriptions of your works (including lists of your CDs and scores and where to obtain them), your education and background, personal artistic statements, upcoming performances and reviews. If you already have scores in the Center's collection, a listing of these will be available from your page with information about how members can check them out.

    We'll provide guidelines for formatting your page, with the idea of keeping the information content high and consistent with our other pages. We highly recommend that you examine the Individual Artists Pages already established for help in creating your pages. These pages will form a database of information about our performers and composers for the whole world to access, at a site which has already had great success. Individual Artist Pages will not be personal home pages, but rather a professional opportunity to promote your music through the thousands of contacts which the American Music Center attracts daily to its WWW site.

    If you've already set up a personal home page and you're a member, we will link you to our Individual Artists Pages without charge. The $300 setup fee is for initial programming and configuration of your suite of pages. Changes to your WWW pages, including updates and requests for customized pages, will be billed at a little more than $50 an hour (with a $15 minimum, when last discussed). Where else can you get such a deal?

  4. A fabulous site was created by Sarah Whitworth. It is the Early Music Women Composers Page at If you want to email her, send to:

    She has created many links to sites of interest to women composers, artists, scholars, etc. She also suggests the Ladyslipper Catalogue at

  5. A very active writer, researcher and creator of women's dicsographies is Dr. Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner. She was at The University of Illinois, but just moved to the Music Technology Center at the School of Music, Florida International University, in Miami. Send her email at:

    Her web page has links to many music organizations, sound/video files of some of her compositions, and includes a web site about digital notation and online transmission of notation information on the WWW, among other things too good to miss. Her site is at:

    She says it is easy to post soundfiles on the web, "-- just save your files as AIFF or WAV files, put them on your server and other folks can download them." If everybody did that, we'd all be able to hear this music!

  6. The Clara Schumann web site is at: It includes a short biography, startup bibliographies, a works list, and links to other composers. You can also become a member of the Clara Schumann Society! Look for the membership page for details. If you don't have access to a World Wide Web browser, and would like a table of contents by which to order email copies of some of the files, please send your email request, or any comments or suggestions you might have to where you will reach David Kenneth Smith.

  7. The Society for Music Theory's Committee on the Status of Women (CSW) can be reached at: The CSW-Home Page contains information about the committee and its ongoing projects, including a Bibliography of Resources in Music and Women's Studies, SMT's Guidelines for Non-Sexist Language, and an Archive of Syllabi from Women and Music Courses.

    The "Journal of Music Theory" announced recently that it has revised and relocated its Web page to:

  8. Monica J. Hubbard is a font of information regarding choirs. On her web site you will find links to ChoralNet (an international music resource for choral conductors) and a small discography of women's choral music as well as links to other web sites of interest to choral musicians. She also maintains a list of choral music publisher email addresses which she sends monthly to Choralist subscribers. (Information on how to subscribe to Choralist is found on the ChoralNet link). Visit Hubbard's web site at For ChoralNet go to It can be accessed in English, German, French and Spanish, and is the most comprehensive international site available for all matters choral.

    To submit info for posting, go to, choose MAILBOX, fill out the form and hit SUBMIT EVENT or if all else fails, try HELP and they will help you. If you just want to see what they have posted for the coming week, you will probably want to choose Classical & New Music from their list of possibilities. This suggestion comes from Gregory Reeve whose home page is

    Gregory says his site is "THE WEB PAGE dedicated to covering and continuously updating nearly everything in 20th and 21st Century Art Music: Notation files, Sound files, Concert Schedules, New Music information and resources, Composer and Performer profiles, and links to all other New Music sites. We invite the adding of links to this site by all members of the new music community--from composers to publicists. No style of music will be rejected as long as it has been written for the sake of art and not solely for commerce."

  12. Harmonia Mundi France has a web site at the location:

    The site features the complete catalog (arranged both by title and by composer), complete with a great deal of detailed information and hundreds of CD covers in JPEG format; biographies, discographies and tour information for harmonia mundi artists; listings of their most recent releases and award winners; and special features (under What's Hot).

To view their monthly new acquisition lists, point your WWW browser to

    This Internet could be useful. What do you think?

  14. Christopher Reynolds has created a feature on his home page, entitled "Bibliographic List of Published Songs Composed by American and British Women, ca. 1890-1930." The information includes title, composer, poet, publisher, date and city of publication, and accompaniment for 2700 (it will be updated to 5000 entries Summer 1997) songs by women. Mr. Reynolds says:

    "Writing in Boston in 1900 or shortly before, Rupert Hughes observed that one music publisher had seen compositions by women grow from "only one-tenth of his manuscripts a few years ago" to "more than two thirds". To consult this bibliography:

    Click on "Music", again on "Music Department Faculty" and then on his name. He welcomes input from anyone who would like to help expand this list.

  15. Here are some organizations and sites of interest: The Society of Composers, Inc. ( at The American Composers Forum You can have them link their page to yours and you can link to theirs. A contact for the New York Meetings of the American Composers Forum is Brian W. Grundstrom who can be reached at For a list of current NPR email addresses, write to Their gopher address is gopher:// Their WWW address is They may also be found on America Online (keyword:NPR), says Linda Plaut The Cappella Artemisia web page is:

    The web page, is for WOMEN OF NOTE QUARTERLY

    The web address of the San Francisco Conservatory is

    Greenwich House Arts in NYC is

    Hildegard Publishing Company's web page is Talk to Sylvia Glickman (phone: 610-649-8649, FAX: 610-649-8677, email: Ms. Glickman is not only publishing our music (historical and current), she and Martha Furman Schleifer are co-editing for the Macmillan Publishing Company a 12-volume anthology entitled "Women Composers: Music Through the Ages" (volumes I: women born up to 1599 and II: the 17th C. are in print; the three 18th C. volumes will be out later this year, with 19th and 20th to follow.) Now that's work!

    There's a music bibliography on the Web called The American Music Resource, a gopher site since 1993 It is recently updated and appears at AMR contains bibliographies, lists, Internet links and text-files covering all styles of American music, related issues, theory and technology. The collection is indexed into topics (style, genre: currently 52) and by subjects (mostly composers: currently 71--some of them women) for a grand total of well over 100 specific areas. Topics include Women in Music. The entire collection contains 850+ files and over 600 selected URLs. The "Selected Annotated Netography" provides further external links and offers research and Internet assistance. Use of the collection is efficient since it is text-only. (Keep this fact in mind when you create your own site. If you put photos or sound files on your site, depending on how you do it, things can slow down to the point where no one cares to wait for the beautiful material you are offering them.)

  16. Monique Buzzarte has compiled an excellent searchable database of brass compositions by women composers at:

    She is also an advocate for women musicians and is currently focusing on efforts to spotlight media attention on the Vienna Philharmonic's exclusion of women with her "Zap the VPO" web page and email list (to subscribe, send a message to with:

    Just enter her OTHER MUSIC LINKS, and then select the VOCALIST home page. There are lists of many of these associations with their respective addresses. There are simpler ways, but you need to know that we are all linked together in the most interesting ways!

    Connie Sunday has a great page at with a huge number of links to sites with the topics: ORCHESTRA GUIDE, MUSIC PAGES,and FEMINIST PAGES, among other things such as vegetarianism and bicycling.

  20. The AMSLIST is an electronic forum for musicologists world-wide. It allows subscribers to exchange and discuss ideas on musical topics of mutual interest. It encourages list members to pool their knowledge and research by allowing rapid communication on an international level. Additionally, it provides a means of disseminating important AMS (and other related groups) information, news, announcements, etc. The AMSLIST is NOT officially affiliated with the American Musicological Society. The current list owner and administrator: Mark Brill. Please feel free to write TO SUBSCRIBE TO THE AMSLIST Send email to:

    To see the AMS site, try where you will find WWW Sites of Interest to Musicologists and musicians of all sorts, Musicologists' Email Adresses, Forthcoming Conferences, Doctoral Dissertations in Musicology, Award and Fellowship Guidelines, Journal of the American Musicological Society, and so many connections to other sites you won't believe it. From this site I found a huge amount of texts (just waiting to be set to music) that are in public domain. There is a huge list of libraries' sites and musical news lists' addresses. It is an amazing place. A must see.

    There is a great article (on paper) in "Computing In Musicology: An International Directory of Applications" Volume 10, 1995-96 published by the Center for Computer Assisted Research in the Humanities, Stanford, CA called "Tools for Musical Scholarship on the World-Wide Web" by Robert Judd

  21. Go look at some of the following: Women Online News ( for articles "by and about prominent women online, regular features that focus on online content and some technical "how to" tips. An interactive forum may already be available. A short version of the newsletter is distributed on a mailing list to reach out to women who are not on the Web." ( the most popular and well respected web site for lesbians online. WWWomen ( is probably the largest search directory for women online. WWWomen was chosen by U.S. News and World Report as one of the best places for women on the Web.

  22. Women & Performance: A Journal of Feminist Theory Included on this web site are the "Feminist Yellow Pages", providing links to sites related to women's issues broken down by category for easy browsing; or Contact The Maud Powell Society for Music and Education a nonprofit, educational and charitable organization that publishes a quarterly subscription magazine called, The Maud Powell Signature, Women in Music. It is a magazine devoted to the contributions and achievements of women in music, past and present, as composers, performers, educators, historians, promoters, journalists, entrepreneurs.

  23. WOW'EM (Women On the Web--ElectronMedia) is a site aimed at young women with interests in the media arts. The URL is:

    and Katt Hernandez has a site up for a pretty much stagnant organization called the Coalition of Women Improvisers and Composers whose aim is to try and get more young women involved in playing new music-composing, jazz, electronic music, free improvisation, rock, etc.. . .Go see:

    She says it would be wonderful to have other people involved again.

  24. The Internet Public Library Reference Center has every useful reference work accessible via the Internet at, I'm told.

    CIA World Fact Book, an encyclopedia of geographical, cultural, economic, and political information on the nations of the world.

    Of course, after you finish your geographical explorations (while possibly avoiding finishing your string quartet) go look at the URL for the Icelandic Music Page, about which I received word from the owner, Jon Hrolfur Sigurjonsson There is a (multinational) page for libraries and databases at this URL:

  25. Regarding women's writings: WOMEN'S BOOKSHELF - a cybrary of writings by women - Information about books, reports, newsletters, bibliographies, reading lists relevant to your area of interest, out-of-print material reprinted on line, publications for sale can be set up for direct order from WOMEN'S BOOKSHELF.

    To feel better, eat better. You might want to try Farm Direct where you can buy fruit and vegetables. Their site address is The point is that the Internet has a lot of useful and interesting places to go.

  28. Reasons for being online

    Performers write to news groups and actually ask if anyone has written anything for string quartet, for example. You can have performances due to being on the net (assuming you respond to queries), that would never have come your way in a million years.

    Another use for the Internet is to participate in discussions. For example, the ICMC'95 at Banff, "Women's Issues in Computer Music" asked for participation in the panel by sending mail from: or mail to: The panelists were Susan Frykberg, Elizabeth Hinkle-Turner, Paul Lansky, Andra McCartney and the moderator was Mary Simoni. It was your opportunity to participate without going there physically.

    Another one is that someone, Melissa Thiel for example, might want to make her senior thesis project about "the role of woman as composer". She wrote to the IAWM news list and asked to interview willing composers. This is a way to reach students and scholars in a medium where it is not important where you teach college or how many CDs you have out currently. You have an opportunity to say what your music is about, to talk to individuals and groups of people all over the world, to teach them about your music/aesthetic/scholarly interests, and to learn from them. Sometimes, you will even make friends. So, be interviewed. Be written about. You don't even have to dress up.

  29. Some News Lists
    1. There is a list of musical news lists online called The CTI Music: A List of Musical Discussion Lists. Go to:

    2. IAWM has an active news list (open to all interested persons) which is very useful. It has over 225 list members, including participants from Australia, Austria, Canada, China, England, Finland, Hong Kong, Iceland, Ireland, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, Venezuela and the United States and I am sure it has grown. You can subscribe to the list by sending the command (subscribe)to: The electronic list was established in October of 1993 by the International League of Women Composers to more fully realize founder Nancy Van de Vate's vision to create a network of women composers. Through the list the IAWM shares information that can benefit by wide distribution--including announcements, opportunities listings, news items, general inquiries, reference inquiries, calls for scores and discussions of all other topics of interest to women composers and the women-in-music community. The listowners are Sally Reid, and Paul MacDonald, You may view IAWM electronic list archives on the web at:


    3. gen-mus "is a mailing list for discussion of music in relation to women, gender, and sexuality. List managers: Suzanne Cusick, Fred Maus, Chip Whitesell.

      subscribe gen-mus address. 
      No subject heading is necessary.

    4. The College Music Society has a news list. According to my understanding, when subscribing to this list and the gen-mus list, it is a mistake to enter any information for the subject of the message. Also, there should be absolutely nothing in the body of the message except the command 'subscribe cms-teaching-womgen', or, in the case of the gen-mus list, 'subscribe.' For CMS:

    5. The Sonneck Society is the list for the Sonneck Society and only subscribers can post to the list. To subscribe, send an email message to without anything in the subject line. The body of the message should read:

    To find composers/musicologists/friends, etc., if you know the city and/or state in which the person lives, go to the Internet:

    You can type in the person's name and any geographical information you may have. And quicko-chango, a snail mail address and phone number appear! Or, on the Internet go to for a national list of email addresses. For composers, contact his/her publisher - addresses on this site, These suggestions come from Monica Hubbard.

  32. Lastly

    If your information is not on this list, it just means I don't have it or didn't find it. I tried to reach people to ask for permission to publish everything here but if I failed to reach you (or if you didn't reply in time) or if the information is incorrect, I'm sorry. Send me mail and I will add, subtract, or correct it in my lists of such things.
