"An antidote to the erasure that can limit young people's conceptions of what is possible...and expand the world of music."--Kirkus Reviews
"Role models for young people are vital. Music Mavens takes inspiring role models and blends their triumphs and challenges into pathways that set a musically interested young person on their journey with a sense of hope--and some very pragmatic life lessons along the way." --Mitch Glickman, composer, conductor, producer, and educator, and founder and music director of Symphonic Jazz Orchestra & SJO's Music In the Schools Program
"What an amazing resource for young people of any identifying gender to learn about the pathways and possibilities of the music industry. All aspects of the industry are embodied in these stories, revealing the nuance of the craft, reaching beyond the stories of fame we too often hear about in mainstream media. Youth can read one chapter or the whole book and be inspired and educated." --Jennifer Carroll, associate director of education, Inner-City Arts

"Overall effect is a rich and inspiring mix of talent and career directions...high-interest volume with educational value."--Booklist
