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. 

ACS is offering Making Music member discounts on their custom and universal hearing protection products

ACS specialise in hearing protection for musicians and music lovers. They offer a range or attenuating earplugs that reduce damaging frequencies but still allow you to hear the music – ideal for a leisure time musician. 

You can find out more about ACS on their Making Music Corporate Membership blog and on their website
