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.

Sensaphonics is running a Facebook giveaway contest for the month of May in celebration of Better Hearing Month. The company will award one winner with a pair of classic 2X-S custom in-ear monitors and a dB Check in-ear sound level analyzer.
“Better Hearing Month is the perfect time to show musicians how the right in-ear equipment can deliver amazing, high-impact audio while still supporting long-term hearing health,” says company founder and president, Dr. Michael Santucci. “As our clients know, Sensaphonics is committed to delivering both.”
Known for their dedication to hearing wellness, Sensaphonics designs IEM products that help prevent hearing loss. The 2X-S custom in-ears feature soft silicone earpieces for maximum isolation and comfort. The patented dB Check in-ear level analyzer is the only device that measures actual IEM levels in real time and displays how long one can listen safely at that volume.
