About the ISM
The ISM is the professional body for those working in the music profession. We promote music and look after the interests of professional musicians.
Our membership of approximately 7,000 covers both individual musicians and corporate bodies. Individual members include leading conductors, featured and non-featured artists, orchestral musicians working in all of the UK’s leading orchestras, composers, animateurs and arrangers.

David Abrahams – Head of Legal, ISM
David Abrahams was called to the Bar in 1998 and has many years’ experience as a barrister in both employed and self-employed practice. David specialised initially in property and regulatory law but, in 2007, he joined the ISM as Head of our Legal Team, seeing this move as a great opportunity to combine his professional work as a lawyer with his keen interest in music and the music industry. Since 2007, David has developed an in-depth knowledge of legal issues relating to the music sector and, in particular, the rights of composers and performers. Each year the ISM Legal Team provides in-depth legal advice in relation to hundreds of legal enquiries from ISM members, advising on a range of contract, copyright and employment issues and winning an estimated £100,000 per annum on behalf of our members each year. In his spare time, David is a choral musician (tenor voice), and a member of two choirs which perform regularly in London and around the UK.
