Make Music


Sign Up as a Performer or Venue

What are you waiting for? Just make music!
We invite musicians, rappers and instrumentalists of all kinds to collaborate on making June 21 a musical masterpiece. Singers, church choirs, jazz combos, rock bands, glee clubs, MCs, marching bands, mariachis, and every other kind of musician, of any age group or skill level, are all welcome.

Use our poster generator to promote your event (whether live or virtual), and use the hashtag #MakeMusicDay when you share it. On June 21, pull out your instrument and start playing. Piece of cake!

Or join a participatory project where you can just bring your instrument – or yourself – and join in! Take a free live music lesson, play a song Live From Home, contribute to a Bedroom Studio, sing in the Heart Chant, or join one of this year’s many other featured national projects.
