The Society for Music Theory (SMT) promotes music theory as a scholarly and pedagogical discipline. We include among our members not only teachers and students, but also non-academics who have a deep interest in the field. All those who enjoy engaging with music theory are invited to join our welcoming community of musicians who are passionate about this subject.

The Society for Music Theory promotes the development of all aspects of the discipline of music theory. The Society construes this discipline broadly to be the formal study of music of the Western tradition and beyond, embracing all approaches, from conceptual to practical, and all perspectives, including those of the listener, composer, performer, and teacher. The Society furthers the dissemination of music theory through the hosting of annual conferences, the publication of journals both print and online, and the ongoing maintenance of an online presence, as well as outreach to other scholarly societies. The Society actively seeks to support other publications, workshops, interest groups, and any such activities that serve the diverse goals of the study of music theory. The Society is equally committed to diversity and gender equity, actively seeking to promote the health and welfare of its scholarly community.
