Join the Society for Music Perception and Cognition

Membership in the Society is open to all who are interested.

SMPC members receive biweekly digests with news on conferences, job/student opportunities, and other information pertinent to our field. They also receive discounted registration at SMPC conferences, and faculty members can request to be included in the SMPC Map of Music Cognition and Music Psychology Labs.

Society fees are $40 for a two year period, and you may pay for as many years (in multiples of two) as you like. A $1 service charge (per two-year period) is added to assist in covering the administrative costs related to this convenience.



It is easy to use a PayPal account to submit your SMPC dues online using a credit card or bank account. There are two steps to becoming a member online:
1) Click here to complete the online membership information form
2) Once you have submitted the form, you will be directed to PayPal to submit your payment
