Book a free Online Health Check

Find out how well your group is connecting with people online

Many groups find that one of the biggest challenges they face is recruiting new members, especially members under the age of 35. 

In 2018 we piloted our Youth Health Check service, matching up youth engagement volunteers with nearby local groups, to help them identify what they could do to reach out to and engage better with under 35-year-olds.

82% of the changes that groups made as a result of these checks were to their online presence – either website, social media, or both.

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. 

Safeguarding training course

We have teamed up with the Child Protection Company to develop an online safeguarding course designed specifically for leisure-time music groups, available to Making Music members at a discounted rate.

Thought provoking scenarios used in the course ensure that appropriate awareness of safeguarding is the learning outcome of the course. - Andrew Adam, Congleton Youth Orchestra
