Meet the MPA

The Music Publishers Association (MPA) represents the full diversity of the UK’s music publishing sector. We act on behalf of 280 businesses that invest in, license works and support the livelihoods of songwriters, composers and lyricists – ranging from the UK’s largest and most established music publishers to independents and start-ups across all genres. These companies are the engine room of British music – they support our music makers – and drive an extraordinary cultural and economic success story.

Some Kind Words About the MPA
  • “The Music Publishers Association is an absolute must for any publishing company serious about working within the vibrant and exciting United Kingdom music industry. Traditional publishers and visionary independents work together in a shared forum of expertise, enjoying a friendly social environment, offering an exceptional knowledge resource, to protect the rights of all those who create within the industry.”

    David Golightly, Director, Modrana Music Publishers

  • “I honestly thought it was (MPA Specialist Seminar March 2018) one of the most interesting and informative seminars I’ve ever attended, so massive congratulations to the MPA for securing the speakers and putting it all on!”

    Paddy Orchard, Copyright Assistant, Audio Network


  • “The MPA Specialist Seminar (Part 2) greatly exceeded my expectations. I went along hoping for some useful tips for choosing sub-publishers and pitching music for syncs, but came away with so much more, including some essential new contacts. The moderators and panellists put a great deal of thought and effort into their roles, and everyone was very friendly and approachable. Looking forward to future events!”
