Do you think being a woman and a musician is different from being a man and a musician? If so, how? Was there a moment that made a difference clear to you?

Yes. During my schooling I was usually the only woman composer in the program. When applying for a doctorate program at one major university, I was instructed by the person in charge of the admission to apply for school of education rather than for a program in composition within a school of arts and sciences.

Did anyone ever give you any valuable advice about making your way in the music industry? What advice would you give to a woman musician just starting out?

The most important thing to keep in mind is perseverance! Believe in yourself and do (write, compose) what you and only you want to do.
