Membership Options

There are several membership options available to potential musicians and music lovers.

REGULAR MEMBERSHIP: The Regular membership is comprised of all non-collegiate individuals 21 years of age or older.  Its members range the full spectrum of involvement in music: teachers, administrators, industry professionals, researchers, and enthusiasts.

COLLEGIATE MEMBERSHIP: Governed by it's own Executive Board, the Collegiate/Young Artist (CYA) division was designed to provide an opportunity for collegiate musicians to explore their talents, meet and interact with professionals in many different areas of music, and develop a network among themselves and mentors who are professionals in the field.  For our collegiate members, there are numerous performance opportunities throughout the year, particularly in our scholarship competitions, CYA concerts, master-classes, and various events at our annual national convention.

LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP: Life Membership is for individuals that would like to pledge a life-long commitment to NANM.  Those persons who are Life Members automatically become a member of the Life Members Guild, founded by past national president Dr. Theodore Charles Stone in St. Louis, Missouri, August, 1969---the year NANM, Inc. celebrated its Golden (50th) Anniversary.  While the Life Members Guild was originally organized for fun and relaxation via its inaugural brunch, it has accepted the challenge of supporting specialized projects that are important to the mission and purpose of NANM.  The Life Membership fee can be paid either in a one-time payment in full, or paid in four installments.
