American Federation of Musicians

If you’re a pro, or hope to be in the business of drumming, you should seriously consider the pros and cons of joining the union.

Depending on the work you want to do, for example playing shows on Broadway or making movies in Hollywood, union membership can be a requirement. After a quick test of your musical abilities, and a yearly fee that varies among local chapters, you’ll get your official union card. Benefits even include a pension plan.

Plus, union halls are still great places to network with other musicians. Many a band was formed and lots of gigs booked through networking at the local union hall. Although the union is not as critical to the music business as it once was, it still has its place.

You’ll also get a directory containing the names, addresses, and phone numbers of all the members in your local.
