It holds its annual National conferences in Nigerian Universities as approved at the Annual General meetings. It became an affiliate of International Musicological Society based in Switzerland in 2012. The Association was headed by past Presidents Dr. Achinivu, Prof. Omibiyi Obidike and Prof. Dan C.C. Agu. Drs. Bode Omojola, ‘Femi Faseun, ‘Femi Abiodun and ‘Femi Adedeji had served as the National Secretary of this great Association.
