Recording musicians provide the sounds and soul of motion pictures, television, sound recordings, commercial advertisements and much, much more.  Power up your IPod, turn on your radio, TV, Wii or XBox, walk into a movie theater or simply enter any public building, and you will be enveloped by the sounds created and performed by recording musicians.

The RMA works hard to improve the lives of the artists, the musicians, the players, orchestrators, copyists and librarians who bring this music to life.  As a small minority within the American Federation of Musicians we are ever surrounded by other interests, but we never lose sight of the bottom line – the lives and livelihoods of working musicians.
