Apply to be our 2016 Program Artist!

Application deadline: May 5, 2016


Funded by donations, each year we record a 3 song EP, design custom album art and host an album release party for each “Program Artist.” In addition to our pro bono music production services, Program Artists are mentored by our team of music professionals who help them understand the business side of music, register with performing rights organizations, better understand royalties and help monetize their music.




The Idle Tuesdays Ambassador Program serves other nonprofits through music.

Idle Tuesdays Ambassadors are by nomination only and consist of singers, entertainers, parents, musicians, actors, speakers and celebrities.


Our goal at Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio is simple: to influence culture through positive music. We’re launching the Ambassador Program this year to provide our community partners with the gift of music.


Each nonprofit partner is unique and we tailor our Ambassador Program to fit the needs, demographics and population of each organization.



Stay tuned to everything that's happening at Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio!
