As a member of ISME, you are furthering the development of music education internationally – by supporting the Society that works on your behalf for the betterment of music education in all parts of the world. In doing so, you help make the world of music education much stronger professionally, politically and theoretically.

ISME has different types of paid membership: 

  • Individual,
  • Student (full-time students and for a maximum of four years) 
  • Group membership.

Each membership runs for two calendar years from January to December. The fee to become a member depends on the country in which you are based and, for group members, the size of the group.

Honorary Life Membership is bestowed upon individuals who are recognised for their dedication to the Society and to music education

On joining you will draft your own membership profile, including the particular areas of ISME work in which you have an interest. You choose whether or not to make your profile public to all ISME members or to only share your details with the ISME administration and co-ordinators of the Commissions or Special Interest Groups which represent your interests.
