The Mission of the Florida School Music Association is to provide leadership, advocacy, and services for school music programs in support of quality music education experiences for students.
The Florida School Music Association, Inc (FSMA) is a non-profit 501c (3) corporation that was established in 1998 after the Florida High School Activities Association (FHSAA) was restructured in 1997. The purpose of this association is to provide oversight for interscholastic music activities for public, private, and home school students at the middle and high school levels. The association recognizes the component organizations Florida Bandmasters Association, Florida Orchestra Association, and Florida Vocal Association to sponsor district and state Music Performance Assessments (MPA) for bands, orchestras, and choruses in Florida secondary schools.
FSMA provides financial oversight of component organizations by facilitating annual audits that comply with Florida Statute 1006.19 to ensure legal compliance and enable component boards to fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities. FSMA provides resources to assist component organizations in improving financial control and policies.
FSMA membership is required for schools that wish to participate in state-recognized interscholastic music activities, which include music performance assessments for large ensembles and for solo-ensemble events. See the Join or Renew page for more information.
