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.

#UnityInTheMusicCommunity

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. 

Important Announcement!!!

MFM made an announcement at the MFM Public Musicians Forum #11 (February 13, 2019): MFM supports political actions leading to the amendment of the “Safe Harbor” provision (section 512) of the DMCA.

Further details of this, as well as announcements of official MFM action in this regard, will be forthcoming.
