Why become a member

PASMAE welcomes new members

The Pan African Society for Musical Arts Education (PASMAE) serves as a forum for sharing expressed musical cultures in and across countries. It is a truly inclusive space for artists, teachers, musicians and scholars to deconstruct and reconstruct musical arts performance and instruction. Whether in the diaspora or on the continent, I stay connected like a tree branch feeding on my roots. Firm and stable. I recommend being part of PASMAE because I contribute and learn all the time.
