Make Music Day 2018

Monday, 21 May 2018

Harness the music vibe - even if just for one day - celebrate Make Music Day 21 June.

With 142,000 Australiasian businesses under licence to use their members' music APRA AMCOS is drumming up support for Make Music Day Australia. For creative entrepreneurs, the day can give them a boost in customer numbers, a shot of publicity and a chance to show support to the local rich and diverse musical community. 

Make Music Day is a international celebration of music. Average (read: non-music) people in more than 800 cities take music into the streets, parks, plazas and businesses of their home town.

Your business can take on this DIY music festival either by hosting an event or participating in an organised activity in your area. 

For some extra PR, you can register your event makemusicaustralia.org.au/events

Here’s some ideas from APRA AMCOS:

Karaoke in the hairdresser. Yes! It's a thing! Get creative and host a karaoke day at your salon! It‘s cost effective and it will bring a new fun atmosphere to your business while showing your support to music. Invite the newspaper along. 

Jam session in the office. Organise a lunchtime jam session at work and encourage your co-workers to bring in an instrument (or make one - remember the comb and paper harmonicas from your childhood?). Alternatively, you can invite a percussion or ukulele beginners workshop into your workplace and learn something new. Make sure you take some pictures and share them online using the hashtag #makemusic 

Live music at your local pub. Off the back of Make Music Day, do a social media shout out to find fresh musicians who would be interested in performing at your venue! Share all the information through social media. All gigs big and small can be registered in the Make Music website makemusicaustralia.org.au/events/submit/add

DJ for a Day. You can DJ in a butchers shop, a supermarket and even a patisserie. Get creative and bring 'a club' to your business for one day. Research proves tempo can influence the amount of time customers spend contemplating their purchases as well as their level of enjoyment. Who doesn’t like to shop listening to their favourite music?
