Bylaws, Guidelines, and Policies

The Society for Music Theory (SMT) was established in 1977 to promote music theory as both a scholarly and a pedagogical discipline.

Mission Statement

The Society for Music Theory promotes the development of and engagement with music theory as a scholarly and pedagogical discipline. We construe this discipline broadly as embracing all approaches, from conceptual to practical, and all perspectives, including those of the scholar, listener, composer, performer, teacher, and student. The Society is committed to fostering diversity, inclusivity, and gender equity in the field.
