Schools Music Association announces merger with ISM

30 March 2014

The Schools Music Association (SMA) is to become part of the Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) as of 1 July.    

The two organisations have increasingly worked together in recent years in areas of advocacy and support for music educators.  Following the merger, the ISM organisation, name and normal functions will continue unaltered. SMA members will become part of the ISM and will be known as ‘ISM-SMA’ members. Those that choose to upgrade to full ISM membership can also enjoy the legal, insurance and other services that the ISM offers.   

The SMA has been consulting its members on the future of the organisation since 2012. SMA members indicated an overwhelming preference to explore merger with the ISM in November 2012, and at their AGM on 26 October 2013 voted unanimously for the association to merge with the larger ISM.   

Jay Deeble, Chairman of the SMA, said: ‘After 76 years of working to help children and their teachers make music together, we are looking forward to the next 76, working as a vibrant part of the ISM. Joint projects, and shared values and attitudes mean that the transition should be seamless, and we shall continue to provide an essential network for music teachers, serving as a vital link between those working with young people and the policy makers at local, regional and national level. Our aims will remain unchanged and we shall continue to organise events involving children in mass music-making, as well as provide termly resources to members.’
