About the Future of Music Coalition

Program Areas

FMC’s work falls into three program areas – education, research and advocacy.

FMC actualizes its mission through a number of activities. We organize events that bring hundreds of musicians, technologists, attorneys, policymakers and industry representatives together for cutting-edge discussions about the changing music landscape, making sure to include a variety of voices in the conversation. We submit testimony, publish articles and speak on panels to make sure the creators’ experience is heard. We distill and translate information for musicians, and keep musicians informed about the changing music landscape. Finally, we generate original research to more completely illuminate the mechanics of the music industry.
