Sustainability Matters

Sustainability and our impact on the environment around us is something that everybody is more aware of. In the music industry we believe this extends beyond simply looking at our environmental sustainability, it extends to access and the sustainability of music in the communities we serve. We have developed a series of initiatives and programs working with local partners, organisations, and individuals in order to improve musical outcomes.

"We can change musical outcomes and reduce waste by reusing and recycling quality musical instruments"

What's the problem?

Musical instruments are becoming a waste stream!

For years the music industry been incredibly sustainable, producing products that could be maintained and repaired for decades.

With the advent of more electronics and cheaper production, many newer instruments are now unrepairable. When they go wrong they are being replaced rather than repaired. Selling even relatively expensive digital pianos can be difficult, they are expensive to transport and warranties are often not transferrable.

How are we changing this?

We're trying to encourage re-use and recycle where possible. We have schemes to reuse instruments for rental or donation.

We're then working to donate to local schools and organisations, improving musical outcomes with the lifechanging benefits music can have.

Our Next Sustainability Event Starts Soon
