Setting the Stage for Success

We’re giving our young people a chance to shine — one standing ovation at a time. Bringing Down the House connects talented, young artists to one another and to music industry insiders to build self-confidence, develop new skills, hone their brand, and bring crowds to their feet. Celebrated venues play host as memorable backdrops for experiences that fuel ambition and kick-start musical careers. Once completed, alumni are invited to join the ranks of our artist roster and participate in our GIGTERNSHIP program.


Key Dates

Industry sessions give participants the chance to connect with panels of influential music industry professionals and other young musicians nationwide. The series of five industry sessions take place on Saturdays over a five-week period (approx. 9 AM – 12:30 PM PST).

Bringing Down the House will culminate in a FREE live showcase on a legendary stage. All participants will get the chance to showcase their talent and bring down the house for their friends, family and fans.
