Discounts and subsidies

Making Music discounts: Overview

We know that many of our member groups operate on a tight budget. Working with our corporate members, we’ve collected more than two dozen discounts, subsidies and offers to help our members save on everything from sheet music to booking artists and making recordings. 

Composers Edition

Founded by Dan Goren and launched in 2013, Composers Edition is a unique publishing enterprise, which works to bring composers and performers together, and facilitates and celebrates music making involving contemporary repertoire. 

The Composers Edition team is especially focussed on opening up new music to musicians and programmers who might feel uncertain about what and how to programme or commission new work.


MusicGurus, a Making Music premium corporate member, have a simple aim: to be the number one place to learn music online.

test-meter: CO2 monitor discount

Since lockdown has eased, identifying poorly ventilated areas in your rehearsal or performance space has become a key part of assessing Covid risk. Monitoring carbon dioxide levels is a vital part of this. Our Corporate Supporter, test-meter, are experts in the field and are offering our members advice and a discount on a carbon dioxide monitor to help. 

Sing Safe

SingSafe is a revolutionary silicone insert which allows you to sing comfortably and confidently while keeping you and others safe.


This affordable insert is made using food-grade silicone and worn underneath your face mask to keep it off your mouth. This allows you to take a lungful of air and not mouthful of mask. They are lightweight and durable, making it easy to store in your bag or even your pocket.
