The Austin Songwriters Group has been serving songwriters since 1986. ASG is a volunteer organization of songwriters, dedicated to providing ongoing educational, performance and networking opportunities specifically for songwriters. ASG programs throughout the year assist songwriters in developing their skills in the craft of songwriting, while also providing them with opportunities to network with publishers, producers and other music industry professionals.
Virtually every ASG activity throughout the year requires participants to be an active ASG member. To maintain “active” membership status, members must be current in their annual dues at the time of the event. There are different annual membership plans to choose from, starting as low as $9.95 month. With three tiers of Membership Plans to choose from, it should be easy to find one that best suits your needs throughout the year. All Membership Plans are for one-year and renewable on or before the anniversary date of first becoming a member. The Annual Membership Plans are as follows:
Platinum Membership: One-Pay @ $500/year
To view the details of the various membership plans, simply click on one of the membership subscription links below for the plan that interests you. The benefits of each plan are detailed on the respective membership subscription page. All plans include the benefits of the Basic Annual Membership, with the Gold Sustaining Membership and the Platinum Membership having additional benefits above and beyond the Basic Membership.
With annual dues current, an ASG member is then eligible to participate in and register for events throughout the year, some free and others at discounted rates, including:
Even if Austin is not local for you, and you cannot attend some of the weekly and monthly recurring events, ASG Membership still delivers benefits and opportunities throughout the year, including song contests, private event workshops and the annual symposium. Even the mentoring sessions can be done remotely through video conferencing, if necessary.
The bottom line is that ASG is an organization for songwriters, voluntarily run by songwriters to benefit its songwriter membership. Each member is valuable to ASG, and we are all responsible to the group. Keeping our dues current each year is the way we serve the entire active membership and insure they continue to receive services and support throughout the year.
It is simple. By maintaining your membership status and keeping it current each year, you not only receive direct personal benefits from participating in the events throughout the year, you also simultaneously “pay it forward” by keeping the organization active so that it is there in the future for others who will come to learn and become members.
We are, each of us, the stewards of the Austin Songwriters Group at this moment in our more than 30 years of history. To make sure ASG is still here to celebrate a 40th or 50th year of serving songwriters essentially depends on how each of us maintains our stewardship while we are members. Join ASG today by subscribing to either the Basic Annual, Gold Sustaining, or Platinum memberships.
One songwriting tip received at a Song Doctor Session. One potential collaborator met at an ASG event. One booking tip shared by a fellow member, or one music publishing connection made during a private song pitch appointment. All of these and more are, by themselves, worth way more than the annual dues, no matter which plan you subscribe to. Do yourself a favor, become an ASG member today!
