The Madison Area Music Association mission is to put instruments in kids' hands. The organization puts on an annual Grammy-type show and other events whose proceeds help fulfill that mission.
BTW provides songwriters and composers knowledge, expertise, and tools to help them earn a living. The Festival portion of the event is generally comprised of dozens of musical acts performing on several stages in multiple venues in the heart of Madison.
The Conference is comprised of dozens of diverse speakers with topics such as "Yes, Your Band Is a Business," "Music in Film," and "Mindsets and Strategies for a Successful Music Career." Sessions have included Grammy winners and nominees Kip Winger, The Avett Brothers, Butch VIg, Ben Sidran and Michael Boddicker. Other speakers have included Paul Broucek, President of Warner Pictures Music Group, rock manager David Spero and legendary sound engineer Bud Snyder.
