Mission

MAESTRA MUSIC, INC. was founded by composer/lyricist and music director Georgia Stitt to give support, visibility, and community to the women who make the music in the musical theater industry. Our membership is made up of female-identifying, non-binary, and gender non-conforming composers, music directors, orchestrators, arrangers, copyists, rehearsal pianists and other musicians who are an underrepresented minority in musical theater. The organization’s initiatives include monthly educational seminars, mentorship programs, technical skills workshops, networking events, and online resources and partnerships that aim to promote equality of opportunity and to address the many historical disadvantages and practices that have limited women composers and musicians in the musical theater.

Maestra Directory

Maestra built a database to provide visibility and work opportunity to the female, non-binary, and gender non-conforming composers, conductors, lyricists, orchestrators, copyists, educators and musicians serving the musical theater and opera industries. When an industry claims it's hard to find the women to do these jobs, we provide the counterclaim: we have the women.

Population(s) Served
Artists and performers
Women and girls

One of the ways a person becomes a Broadway Music Director is through a series of apprenticeship and associate-level jobs-- but the gatekeepers to those jobs (Producers, Contractors, and Music Supervisors) are predominantly male. Maestra wants to put more skilled women into the pipeline to leadership, and we recognize that this requires basic musicianship skills, leadership, mentoring, and access. Our Maestra Music Directors Initiative (MMDI) is a semester-long program offered twice a year that includes bi-weekly master classes with industry leaders, practicum training, mentors, pit access, and a network of colleagues that can help set women up for success as future Music Directors and Music Supervisors.
