How to Join the Music Forward Alliance

The Music Forward Alliance is our new annual membership program that offers those who join a way to unite with our mission and goals through exclusive benefits, distinctive engagements and meaningful mentorship opportunities.

The Alliance offers supporters a unique and powerful way to bridge community to the music industry. As a Music Forward Alliance member, you will get direct, exclusive access to connect with young professionals, seasoned industry experts, executives, and artists; attend events where you can be among the first to see talented emerging artists perform; and, receive advanced invitations to speak directly to and inspire youth participants at our workshops, panels, and performances. Your support will offer you authentic connections that will make an impact on you, our program participants, and the music industry as a whole.

“What [contributing] does and why I was happy to do it, is that it gives our employees a sense of giving back, meaning, sharing and mentoring. All of those things give us purpose and really at the end of the day, whether we choose to admit it or not, having purpose in what we do is the real prime directive for happiness, contentment and fulfillment.” – Kelly Vaught, Principal & CMO BeCore and Music Forward Alliance member

So how do you join?

Step 1: Review membership level options on the Music Forward Alliance page. 

Alliance levels start with the Student level at just $4 a month ($50 year). As a Student member, your support helps equip five youth with materials to master an intensive music industry career fair. At the Professional level ($500 year), you can give an entire class the opportunity to experience a workshop-fueled industry career festival. With our highest Spotlight Circle level of $5,000 year, you’ll enable Music Forward to send 400 youth on a field trip to discover off-stage music industry professions like sound engineering, venue management, music marketing, and more!
