We are #BehindEveryMusician

We stand up for employed and self-employed musicians working in every area of the UK music industry, including music education.

We work to maximise the employment and overall income of musicians as well as protecting and improving working conditions. We also offer advice, support and legal assistance based on every individual member’s needs.

We lobby government at all levels and campaign on a national and international scale on issues of relevance to our members.

We actively oppose all forms of harassment, prejudice and unfair discrimination whether on the grounds of sex, race, ethnic or national origin, religion, colour, class, caring responsibilities, marital status, sexuality, disability, age, or other status or personal characteristic.

What we do and how we work

The MU is the most effective organisation representing the interests of musicians in the UK, and our standing, profile and influence over the wider industry and government has never been greater. By looking after musicians, we are also looking after the future of music in the UK.
