Member Organisations

We collaborate with our member organisations to provide services for music authors and publishers

We cooperate with our member organisations to protect the interests of music authors, composers and music publishers and support their professional careers.

As our member organisations focus on different aspects of the music industry, we are able to build a full picture to comprehensively plan our activities and services for all of our members.

Our member organisations are the Finnish Music Creators’ Association, the Society of Finnish Composers and the Finnish Music Publishers Association. The organisations offer networks, counseling and supervision of interests. Learn more about the organisations below.

The Society of Finnish Composers

Established in 1945, the Society of Finnish Composers is the oldest of Teosto’s member organisations. Its membership consists of about 220 art music composers. The society represents Finnish art music and oversees the artistic, professional and financial interests of composers.

The Society of Finnish Composers supports Finnish contemporary music festivals and concerts produced by independent groups. The society acts as a point of contact for its members, offering them consultation services in questions of agreements, taxation and social security, among other things. The society publishes a journal called Kompositio.  The society’s Board of Directors approves new members based on applications.
