Join the Worldwide Celebration of Music on June 21

Make Music Day will return on June 21 to usher in Summer Solstice with a range of music making events on city streets across America and the world. It is now held in more than 750 cities in 120 countries making it the largest single-day celebration of music.

The goal of the event is simple: to promote music making and the idea that anyone can play. You are never too young or too old to learn music and experience the health and wellness benefits that music provides. There is a musician inside all of us.

Each celebration is unique in it’s own right. Some cities provide free music lessons from a variety of instructors, some put on parades, some feature concerts with hundreds of musicians and some provide a slew of instruments that anyone can pick up and play, maybe for the first time.

All Make Music Day concerts and events are free and open to the public. Musicians of all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome to participate to continue to grow this special day. To get involved, check out and see if your hometown is already a Make Music city. If your city is not involved yet, you are empowered to start your own Make Music event. You can download the Make Music toolkit on the website above to get started.

The NAMM Foundation is a proud partner of this event, as it aligns with NAMM’s mission to promote the pleasures and benefits of making music. Together, we can make music more accessible for all.

“To live is to be musical, starting with the blood dancing in your veins. Everything living has a rhythm. Do you feel your music?” –Michael Jackson
