MUSIC Matters is one of the largest student organizations at the University of Michigan, with approximately 200 members.  Each of our members is able to make a unique contribution to our mission and our events. Our organization is structured with 5 committees that each serve an important purpose to help us use music to unite campus and spark social change.
