Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada. The AFM is the largest organization in the world dedicated to representing the interests of professional musicians.

Our members, who number over 80,000, perform all styles of music—alternative rock, classical, pop, gospel, jazz, country, folk, rock, big band, reggae, contemporary Christian, etc. With such active members as Nelly Furtado, Billy Joel, Melissa Etheridge, Diana Krall, Wynton Marsalis, Lyle Lovett, The Tragically Hip, and Carlos Santana, there is a strong representation of major recording individuals and groups.

The AFM has been promoting and protecting professional musicians for over 110 years and continues to advocate for musicians’ rights in the workplace (be that on a symphony stage, in a recording Studio, in a club, or on tour). We protect the recorded works musicians produce from being exploited, and we protect and promote our members by providing a wide array of valuable services and benefits.

Members of the AFM are secure in knowing that their organization is actively lobbying to promote legislation that protects musicians’ interests, as well as negotiating collective bargaining agreements with the recording industry, motion picture industry, jingle industry, TV networks, and National Public TV and Radio—providing excellent wages and working conditions for its members.

If you are a full-time or part-time musician, it is to your advantage to belong to the only organization that truly represents the interests of musicians and performers. For a detailed explanation of the numerous benefits and services the AFM has to offer the professional musician, email join@afm.org with your information request. Once again, thank you for your interest, and we look forward to the opportunity to support you!

It’s a Great Time to Be a Member!
