The genesis of a Brazilian social artistic stratum in the 19th century and the historical conditions that configured the musical work and training, with the social participation of both genders, compose an eminently sociological problem, which always require reflection. This work proposes a historical-sociological examination of woman participation in the musical scene of the period and its contribution to the training of the new generations of Brazilians musicians from the 19th century. In order to do so, we will do a documental research with the available following sources to address the problem: newspapers, biographies, dictionaries and encyclopedias of music, literary works, letters, works of history of music and also of Brazilian History, among others relevant documents to the theme. The use of "keywords" in sociological analysis allows us to new emphasize the general vocabulary that a given society shared, as well as the way of life printed in the culture and society of a historical moment distant from ours. It is a research method inspired on Raymond Williams' (1921-1988) analyzes of the English context, but it will be reoriented to understand how social and historical processes were constituted within the printed culture in the Brazil of the 19th century.
