This website is your portal to Music and Musicians in Greater Long Beach. We are an Association of diverse professional musicians – Classical Musicians (including members of the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra), Jazz Musicians, Rock Musicians, Country Musicians, Theater Musicians, Recording Musicians, and more -serving the interests of musicians who reside and/or perform in Long Beach, Lakewood, Cerritos and the adjacent areas. We invite you to explore the site!
The Long Beach Area Musicians’ Association is the geographical component of the American Federation of Musicians (AFM) for this area. The AFM is the only organization in the world solely dedicated to advancing the interests of professional musicians. This site will introduce you to the Association, and to the AFM, their benefits and services, and it will show you how you might become a member should you wish to do so. Please check us out!
Exclusive Information for Members
Bridging the gaps of time and distance that separate us, the Association's newsletter, Notes from the Board and the AFM's monthly International Musician provide timely news of the local and national musicians' marketplace. A member can check for employment posts, learn of legislative actions that affect professional musicians, keep up with the Association's activities, and more. Of more permanent nature, this site serves as a primary reference for our members and those musicians who are not yet recognized professionals, but wish to become so. Again, please check us out!
