How To Record Music At
Home With Ease
Hi, I'm Isobel.
I founded The Female DIY Musician to give women safe and respectful spaces to learn to record, produce and mix their music from home.
Through our women-celebrating online courses, communities and podcast, we've transformed the creative opportunities of thousands of women around the world.
How we help you
We're paving the way when it comes to designing radically different, women focussed recording, production and mixing training online.
We centre community, respect and artistry at the heart of all our courses, with a person-centred approach to teaching music tech.
Getting started with recording and production can feel a little overwhelming.

Welcome to your new podcast obsession, the critically acclaimed, feminist music tech podcast, Girls Twiddling Knobs!
Between amazing guest interviews and epic solo deep dives with Isobel, you'll wonder how you ever navigated your music career without it!
Through her trail-blazing, female-focussed online course (Home Recording Academy) thriving Facebook community and an impressive DIY music career to boot, Isobel inspires a grounded, supportive and self-confident sense of “Wow! I really can do this” for female musicians wanting to record and share their music.
She proves that by moving beyond jargon-heavy instructions and into the creative possibilities of music-tech, even those newest to recording can bypass overwhelm and self-doubt, and instead generate exciting momentum as they move closer to sharing their music with the world.
What our students are saying
“I felt like I needed to go into a professional recording studio to achieve that ‘perfect’ sound. Home Recording Academy has taught me that I can do it all myself - I’ve never felt so fulfilled!”
“Before enrolling in Home Recording Academy, I was 'winging' it with music tech. But this programme has totally enhanced my confidence and I'm excited about all the amazing possibilities for my music. ”
“Because of Home Recording Academy, there’s nothing stopping me from getting my music out myself - I no longer have to ask for (male) help or owe people favours for recordings I might not even like.”
