The MPA is the UK trade association for music publishers. We have around 300 members, covering every genre of music. From Adele to the Beatles and Skepta, our members represent the rights of a variety of songwriters & composers.
We know the Music Publishing industry can seem hard to break into but it is not a closed shop. The more you know, the better chance you have of getting where you need to go. We feel passionate about encouraging and supporting the next generation of industry professionals. Contacts are everything and it is a small world so make the most of everyone you meet. If you don’t at least have a basic idea of music publishing; what it is, why it is necessary and where it comes into play, you risk leaving money on the table.
The MPA Student Membership allows you unrivalled access to the music publishing community and the music industry as a whole. Whether you want to get a job in music publishing, start your own publishing company or just want to find out more and get involved in the business, please join us!
