COVID-19 Resources for Musicians

Aloha Kakou!


We recently heard of a wonderful opportunity for Hawaiian songwriters and composers, and we wanted to share it with our membership.  It’s called #mysongisyoursong (see info attached).


The State of Hawai‘i recently was accepted as an affiliate member of the National Make Music Day Alliance.  This Make Music Day June 21, 2020, Hawai‘i songwriters and composers are invited to

join in a global song swap! Learn an original song by a local artist, and hear your original song (or composition) covered in return. Songwriters and composers of all

styles and walks of life are invited to participate in #mysongisyoursong.  Just make sure the song you submit is YOUR ORIGINAL SONG OR COMPOSITION (i.e., instrumental).


Partners will be introduced on June 5th, carefully chosen from your registration. You'll make their song your own, and share a video on June 21st with #mysongisyoursong to join in the global celebration.


Make Music is a free celebration of music around the world on June 21st. Launched in 1982 in France as the Fête de la Musique, it is now held on the same day in more than 1,000 cities in 120 countries. Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music is open to anyone who wants to take part. Every kind of musician — young and old, amateur and professional, of every musical persuasion — pours onto streets, parks, plazas, and porches to share their music with friends, neighbors, and

strangers. All of it is free and open to the public.
