Empowering musicians through education, community, and advocacy.


The Tacoma Music Organization exists to empower musicians through education, community, and advocacy.  Our city is home to performers of music, creators of music, and lovers of music.  We work to create a musical community and economy within Tacoma that supports these groups of people and the youth who are growing into them.


Throughout the year, we host workshops and clinics on topics such as: music publishing & copyrights, songwriting, live audio, music business, and finances.  We also are building youth programs and mentorship programs to educate the next generation of the music community in topics including production, engineering, how to get started as a musician, and music career opportunities.


We believe that music is a communal art form, and establishing a strong community around Tacoma’s music is a focal point of our mission.  We do this by hosting focused networking events, providing a directory of musicians, engineers, studios, photographers, web designers, etc., and by hosting live events and shows that bring the community together.


We work to find and create more paid opportunities for members, hear the concerns of the community and being a representative voice to the city and other organizations, and provide resources to musicians to support their success.
