Since its inception 10 years ago, Creative United's 'Take it away' scheme has helped over 80,000 children and young people in England and Northern Ireland have access to musical instruments through £60M in loans. Now the scheme has been broadened to help even more budding musicians.
There have been some substantial changes announced to the scheme with the new partnership with Omni Capital Retail Finance, including:
- Loans at 0% finance are now available to people of ANY age (not just <25s)
- They can now be used to purchase ANY type of musical product, including lessons, PAs, software and accessories like instrument cases.
At Making Music, we're firm believers in the importance of musical discovery at every age (most of us are adult learners ourselves!), so we think this is cause for celebration!
