Campaigning on behalf of the music sector

In 1882 the ISM was set up to promote the art of music and protect the honour and interests of the music profession. The ISM has a long history of standing up for the rights of performers, composers, educators and the whole music profession and this work is as vital today as it was then.

We actively lobby Government on behalf of our members to create a united voice for music. We listen to our members, to the music industry, and to the arts and education sectors in order to develop full informed and effective campaigns.

Our current campaigns include:
