New Music USA Community Survey


We really appreciate that you’ve clicked on the link to this survey. One of New Music USA’s core values is to uphold and embrace principles of inclusivity and equitable treatment in all of our activity and across our nation’s broadly diverse constituency. We want to be aware of and responsive to the full range of people with whom we’re connected, and to be growing that community day by day and year by year.

You can help us.
