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 can create 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.
