Now is the right time to become an American Federation of Musicians member. From ragtime to rap, from the early phonograph to today's digital recordings, the AFM has been there for its members. And now there are more benefits available to AFM members than ever before, including a multi-million dollar pension fund, excellent contract protection, instrument and travelers insurance, work referral programs and access to licensed booking agents to keep you working.
As an AFM member, you are part of a membership of more than 80,000 musicians. Experience has proven that collective activity on behalf of individuals with similar interests is the most effective way to achieve a goal. The AFM can negotiate agreements and administer contracts, procure valuable benefits and achieve legislative goals. A single musician has no such power.
The AFM has a proud history of managing change rather than being victimized by it. We find strength in adversity, and when the going gets tough, we get creative - all on your behalf.
Like the industry, the AFM is also changing and evolving, and its policies and programs will move in new directions dictated by its members. As a member, you will determine these directions through your interest and involvement. Your membership card will be your key to participation in governing your union, keeping it responsive to your needs and enabling it to serve you better. To become a member now, visit www.afm.org/join.

Yamaha’s AG03 and AG06 hybrid mixing consoles and USB audio interfaces offer high-resolution (24-bit/192kHz) audio recording and playback, iOS compatibility, and battery operation. An intuitive TO PC switch allows users to select which inputs get routed back to a computer or iOS device to make mixing mics and instruments a breeze. And though most USB audio interfaces require software to control routing, effects, and monitoring the AG series does not, bringing all controls to the front panel. AG03 and AG06 also feature high quality D-PRE microphone preamps and onboard DSP effects, AUX input for a music player, and foot switch jack for effects. AG06 features six channels and AG03 has three.
