The International Society of Music Education (ISME) is a global network of music professionals seeking to celebrate and enhance the ways that people make, learn and enrich their lives through music.
Active musical experiences add vitality to the lives of all people, and ISME’s mission is to enhance those experiences throughout the world.
Over 100,000 professional educators and musicians are members of ISME individually and through their national music education associations. Based in over 90 countries, our members create a truly dynamic worldwide network for the exchange of best practices and policies relevant to 21st century music education.
