The ISM is the UK’s professional body for musicians.
We champion the importance of music and protect the rights of those working within music through a range of services, campaigns, support and professional advice.
We are a wholly independent non profit-making organisation. Without political interference or financial imperatives we express robust and authoritative views which champion both music and professional musicians.
Our members come from all branches of the profession – performers and composers working in a variety of different disciplines and genres; private, peripatetic and classroom music teachers; academics, advisers, music managers, music technology professionals, music therapists, and music administrators.
You can join the ISM at the following rates:
Full membership: £164 per year
Graduate membership: £65 for your first year

Corporate membership: £95-£495 per year
