about

Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio is managed by volunteers and funded by donations.

We accept applications from artists living in the Los Angeles area and, each year, select one "Program Artist" to participate in our nonprofit music program where we pair them with our music producers, recording engineers, and mix engineers to record their three original songs.

We conclude our program by hosting Listening Party / album release party. All services are provided at no charge and the Program Artist maintains ownership of their work.

Services

Idle Tuesdays Recording Studio is a Los Angeles based 501c3 nonprofit organization.

Our unique music program is managed by professional volunteers and is funded by donations.

  • Support: Artist Care #love

    Artist Care
    Each Program Artist is provided with unique support services and care services throughout their participation in our music program.

    Board Member Dennis Lamar, a performer in his own right, and author of 31 Thoughts to Inspire Your Art, assists Program Artists as they navigate the inevitable ups, downs, and twists that artists experience while recording.

  • Production: Record, Mix, Master #musicproduction

    Program Artists actively participate in the pre-production process by meeting with our volunteers, music producers, recording engineers, musicians (provided by the Program Artist), music arranger, vocal coach, etc. Timelines, schedules, and an individualized strategic plan is then created to map out the remainder of the nonprofit music program.

    Thirty hours of studio time are provided to record three original songs. To produce the best product, we recommend artists have their vocal coach with them in the studio during all sessions. After the three songs have been recorded, we mix and master each one until the desired sound is achieved.

  • Booking: Los Angels Music Tour #LosAngelsMusic

    Los Angeles Music Tour
    After we sign our Program Artist, we start booking performances at Los Angeles events, community outreaches, after school music programs, charity galas, interviews, etc.

    These local performances and interviews help the artist gain the confidence needed at the Listening Party / EP release and throughout their music career.

  • Party: Listening Party / EP Release

    Listening Party / Album Release
    We celebrate each Program Artist’s accomplishments, long hours recording in the studio, hard work and dedication by hosting an annual Listening Party / album release.

    After the original songs are mixed and mastered, we custom design and print a CDs – providing each artist with unique ISRC codes and an individualized bar code, allowing Program Artists to upload and sell their music on digital platforms.
