PRS for Music reduces joining rate to £30 for music creators under 25s
The Members’ Council has introduced the reduced rate in response to feedback from young songwriters and composers, and as part of its wider commitment to actively support the next generation of music creators.
Joining PRS is one of the landmark moments in a songwriter’s and composer’s career, it marks the moment when becoming a professional writer, getting paid for your work, becomes a possibility. We all have a duty to support and encourage the next generation of music creators, the PRS members which are going to drive the talent pipeline forward over the next 100 years. As President of the Members’ Council, I have consistently heard for some young writers that the cost of PRS membership has been a disincentive to join, and as such they haven’t had access to the support and systems essential to their career progression. I am, therefore, delighted we have been able to introduce this new discounted joining rate to provide easier access for all music creators, irrespective of their circumstances or background
