Mission Statement (November 19, 2018)
MFM seeks to bring together musicians from all disciplines, styles, traditions and localities in the cause of their mutual self-betterment; we seek to promote all conditions which benefit the musicians’ community and the music created by it, and oppose all those which do it harm.
MFM and the music community achieved a big victory October 11, 2018: THE MUSIC MODERNIZATION ACT (MMA)
became law. Besides overlooking the MMA for the next 5 years, the Case Act, the Fair Pay Fair Play Act, and the Classics Act will need to be monitored closely. But probably the most important upcoming action concerns 512 reform of the the Digital Millennium Copyright Act's "safe harbor" provisions.
It's a fact: #MakingMusicIsAProfession
Be it a bandmate, a club owner, a political candidate, a small record label, or a corporate conglomerate, or a popular music streaming service – with the absence of legislation and accountability, unfairness is deeply rooted in our industry.
Work out a general contract for performing musicians.
Improve the member portal.
Contact NYC’s “musicians friendly” venues and discuss a guaranteed performance agreement.
Invite the VIP (1%) musicians to our organization to advocate #UnityInTheMusicCommunity and #MakingMusicIsAProfession.
Help members become familiar with the inner workings of the music business, including the digital / Internet world.
Form alliances with the AFM and other musician support organizations and support them in their endeavors.
Reach out to politicians who care for musicians rights.
Organize an MFM Music Festival for the end of next year (with performances by our members).
MFM needs your participation in order to grow and make a difference. We will provide you with tools, resources, support, and a network of musicians who stand behind one concept: #MakingMusicIsAProfession.
