Making the most of your membership - for MM Reps

What is a Making Music Representative?

The Making Music Representative (MM Rep) is the primary link between Making Music and your group, helping us to create a two-way flow of communication.

This link provides a great way for your group to find out about new opportunities, and to access the support Making Music can offer to help your group to thrive. And it’s the best way for us to communicate with you about what is included in your membership and how that can benefit your group.
