Our partnership with Making Music
Tue, 18th Feb 2020
Making Music is the UK’s membership organisation for leisure-time music groups. Over 3,700 groups across the UK are members, making music of all kinds. More than half are singing groups, from 160 year old choral societies to brand new community choirs.
Making Music provides services for groups like insurance, charity registration and website hosting. There are tools and guidance on our website to support them to run their groups. We have a Scotland Manager who runs events for our 260+ member groups here. Groups can get involved with projects like Adopt a Composer for creative development. And we are the voice of our members, standing up for and celebrating all groups that make music in their leisure time.
Being a partner in the Dementia Inclusive Singing Network is an important part of our work in Scotland. We want to share our knowledge of running music groups with members of the network. We also want to learn from the network so we can encourage and support other groups that want to become dementia inclusive.
Making Music’s vision is that everyone has an opportunity within reach to make music with others. We are so pleased to be part of this project that aims to achieve that vision for people living with dementia and their carers.
Groups that join the Dementia Inclusive Singing Network are offered a 25% discount on membership of Making Music. You can join online or request a joining pack on our website. Use the discount code ‘DISN’ or contact our team to make sure that you get your discount.Back to all news
