eTown’s 6th Annual Handmade Songs Program – October 19th


eTown’s Handmade Songs Series is a songwriting program for high school students to exhibit and expand their creativity, and to learn about music production in a professional setting. Best of all, IT’S FREE! Each year, fifteen students are selected from audio submissions to perform at eTown Hall. Of those fifteen, five finalists receive the opportunity to record their original composition in the eTown studio!

Through the Handmade Songs series, eTown is able to teach these young artists the steps between inspiration and final product at a highly professional level.

Join us for a night of great music and friendly competition!
