Announcing the "Pay it Forward Grant 2023"! Artists and Bands can apply for a $2000 grant of studio time at Innovation Station Music. This is something I started after the studio was broken into a couple of years ago, and so much good came out of it that I've decided to make it an annual thing. With this grant, I hope to make it a little easier for someone in the DMV to make their musical project a reality.

Please fill in the Application Form below, that will be due on 2/4/23 and can be submitted along with audio/video samples here:

The Grant recipient will be announced on Valentine's Day 2023. Happy Holidays and good luck!
