Why become a CAMMAC member?

CAMMAC members hold a common goal with the organization: to support amateur music making for people of all ages, levels and backgrounds.

CAMMAC’s values and reason for being are based on the belief that music should be accessible to all people, regardless of age, background or ability. CAMMAC’s founders firmly believed that making music together creates a bond between people that transcends age, language and cultural differences, and that people who practice the arts at every level bring an invaluable contribution to their communities.

When you become a member of CAMMAC, you strengthen our voice in advocating for the study and performance of music at the amateur level. The higher our membership numbers, the more power we have to create partnerships and obtain grants. These are crucial to developing the high-quality programs and opportunities that enable amateur musicianship to thrive.
