SMA Members say...

Thank you!
Once again I thank you for all your help resolving my contract issue.  I will not hesitate to contact the SMA again if I need assistance in the future and recommend all
members to do the same
....you guys are endlessly helpful and supportive. Thank you!
"Just Brilliant!"
A huge thank you for visiting the school, the students thought you were lovely : ) It was great for the school and course to have your support; we're chuffed we are now members of SMA!
Thank you so much for your response and advice - really really useful!
I've just finished reading the latest Cueline and it really feels like the gold standard of backstage reporting - funny, diverse, well-written, interesting. It's brilliant! 
I must say as a credit to the SMA, reading backdated issues of Cueline is super interesting and informative, really glad I became a member!
You're an inspiration to us all! 
"Thanks for being such a wonderful source of information, you are amazing!"
"SMA training is the best...."
 : took this SMA Cueing to Music course a few years ago, now DSM (Mat Cover) for English National Ballet. Great introduction to score reading!
Just opened my 3rd opera as DSM since I went on the @SMAssoc 'Cueing to Music' course. Highly recommend it to all ASMs & DSMs
Thanks for making sure I was included in Freelist this month -
it was great as it lead to enquiries and at least one interview please could you take me off the list as I have now accepted a job
Thanks so much for helping me to join the SMA. After being on the free list for a couple of days I was kicking myself for not joining sooner…
thanks to the fantastic Freelist I am now booked up with excellent work until December 1st
The phone did not stop ringing for about a week with job offers and interviews
"..love the Freelist"  
AMAZING and life-changing service:  I've been overwhelmed by the response I've had from being on the Freelist. Thank you so much for providing this
I have been a member of the SMA for almost one year and I have got most of my jobs mainly through your SMA freelist.  Thank you so much
