The Society for Music Theory (SMT) promotes music theory as both a scholarly and a pedagogical discipline. Today our Society has a membership of over 1200 music theorists worldwide, whose interests embrace a varied and growing range of subject matter.
If you are already a member of the SMT, I hope that you find this website helpful. If you are not a member, please consider joining the SMT to become part of an exciting and welcoming community of music theorists who are passionate about scholarship and teaching.

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.
