Our head affiliation:

The International Society for Music Education (ISME)

The International Society for Music Education (ISME), founded in 1953, is the premiere world organisation for music education. With members in over 80 countries it is affiliated with UNESCO and the International Music Council. Similar to ASME, the Society believes that every individual has a right to music education.

ASME has close ties with ISME through its status as an ISME National Affiliate (INA) while many ASME members are also members of the world body. One of the great strengths of ISME is its Biennial World Conference, held in a different country every two years.

It has been said that every Australian music educator should attend at least one ISME World Conference in their lifetime!
