The organizations below provide excellent opportunities through online and personal networking, conferences, concerts, festivals, music business help, and grants.
Like with any organization, it is best to be very involved with a few that really meet your professional music needs instead of being a member of two dozen organizations where no one knows you or your music. Once you choose an organization, take advantage of all of their membership opportunities, whether it is a free web listing, free web page, an opportunity to publish online, attend conferences, or apply for grants.
