Discounted sheet music and learning tracks from ChoirCommunity

ChoirCommunity is offering Making Music members a 15% discount of sheet music and learning tracks.  

What is ChoirCommunity? 

ChoirCommunity is a digital marketplace for choirs, providing high quality choral arrangements and compositions of many types of music, created by choir leaders and composers from around the UK and the rest of the world.

Subsidies for engaging professional artists: Overview

Booking professional musicians can be financially challenging for many leisure-time groups. Making Music offers members specially reduced or subsidised rates to make booking and engaging artists more affordable.

Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artists subsidies

The Philip and Dorothy Green Young Artists (PDGYA) scheme enables young musicians at the start of their careers to gain vital performance experience across the UK, while Making Music members can engage some of the very best young musical talent at a reduced cost. 

Discounts for Naxos Music resources

Naxos Music provides a music library and database that can help you with your group's programming and learning needs.

Promoters Subsidy

The cost of engaging and arranging a performance of professional artists can add up. To help smaller promoter members of Making Music (with a gross income of below £14.5K) to cover some of these costs, Making Music is offering a Promoters Subsidy.

*Due to the high volume of requests, we have now closed applications for the Promoters Subsidy for the foreseeable future.*
