Music Mondays

Music Mondays is our first step to connect Columbus with the industry at large and give our guest speakers a taste of what our city has to offer!

The Unheard

Columbus has always had
an abundance of young musicians and music venues. Unfortunately, there are few opportunities for under-age musicians to perform.

To fill this void and help young musicians to develop performance skills, we began an aftenoon all-ages showcase… The Unheard.

Columbus bands or solo artists will be given the opportunity to take the stage in the professional environment of CD 92.9’s
Big Room and perform to an audience of their peers.

Performances will be filmed and each artist will receive a copy for their own promotional use.

Earn as You Learn

Launched in summer of 2021, our Earn As You Learn summer internship program placed students with mentors at recording studios, radio stations, retailers, app developers, and the Music Commission where they experience hands on job training.

Compensated at fifteen dollars an hour and with many offers of full-time employment, the stories of these interns have inspired other students and have instilled hope and possibility.

When the future speaks, we listen.

Coming Soon: Craft Workships

Craft workshops are extensions of
our Music Monday and Earn As You Learn programs.

Conducted in hands- on settings and curated by industry professionals, classes will focus on the art of audio engineering, business management, record production,
songwriting, accounting, and other
inter-disciplinary music skills.
