The SMA is closely associated with the journal Music Analysis, and the Society’s membership packages offer the option of subscribing to the Journal at substantially reduced rates.

Music Analysis is the international forum for the presentation of new writing focused on musical works and repertoires. Through articles of this kind and through its lively Critical Forum, it also aims to take forward debates concerning the relationship of technical commentary on music with music theory, critical theory, music history and the cognitive sciences.

Music Analysis is eclectic in its coverage of music from medieval to post-modern times, and has regular articles on non-western music. Its lively tone and focus on specific works makes it of interest to the general reader as well as the specialist.

For further information about the journal please see:


The journal has created interest not only because of the substantial articles by Allen Forte, Carl Schachter, Arnold Whittall and the like, but also for its review articles on topics of importance to the non-specialist. Music Analysis is eclectic, informative and reasonably priced.
