The MPA is a community and forum for UK music publishers. We provide a collective voice for music publishing, as well as training, representation and a host of other benefits to ensure MPA members can thrive in a fast-paced commercial environment.
From music publishing newcomers to seasoned executives, the MPA provides expert-led, commercially-focused training courses covering all aspects of our business - including digital, sync licensing and international.
Enjoy exclusive access to template contracts, free legal advice, a mediation service, overseas trade missions, discounted entry to conferences, and benefit from the MPA’s participation in industry-wide initiatives that protect the value of our members’ music.
Connecting the next generation of music publishers with current business leaders, our ever-popular socials and events include music showcases, quizzes, pub socials and the legendary MPA Christmas Lunch.
The MPA encourages open participation in policymaking. Through our committees and our member-elected board, we strive to ensure that music publishers are fully represented in discussions with government, the wider music business and the general public.
The MPA also operates a Corporate Associate Membership scheme for non-music publisher businesses and a Student Membership scheme.
The MPA’s Articles of Association govern the make-up of our membership, the structure of the organisation, voting and board elections. As well as music publishing businesses, the articles also cover Corporate Associate Members.
Members pay an annual subscription, with the fee determined by company turnover – starting at £93 per year. As well as a direct say in the running of the Association, that includes exclusive networking opportunities, discounts, access to MPA social events, speaking and sponsorship opportunities, and an invitation to the MPA AGM. You can view the MPA Publisher Membership Subscription fees here.
