The SCL is a vibrant community of composers, lyricists, and songwriters, and has been an active part of Hollywood's music community since 1983. SCL members enjoy the camaraderie among composers and lyricists at a variety of stages in their careers, along with students, patrons, and sponsors supportive of our professional work. The SCL is active in improving the workplace and working conditions through an ongoing dialogue with experienced and acknowledged representatives of the global music community.

If you are an aspiring or professional composer or songwriter, we invite you to consider membership to the Society of Composers & Lyricists. 

The SCL sports a vibrant chapter in New York City. If you are joining us from the East Coast, learn more about the team that's advancing the cause of composers and lyricists in the Big Apple.
