TEACHING WOMEN

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.

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!

Let's Get Started

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.
