About us

Production music is the sonic lifeblood of so many audiovisual productions, from television programs to promotional campaigns to major theatrical releases. With its proliferation across the gamut of media productions and distribution channels, companies responsible for its contribution to the creative process are worthy of recognition.

The Production Music Association (PMA) is the leading advocate and voice of the production music community. We are a non-profit organization with over 670 music publisher members, ranging from major labels to independent boutiques.

Our mission is to elevate the unique value of production music and to ensure the viability of the production music industry.
