Musicians across the world are still making music thanks to over 6,000 free pieces of British music.
The move comes from Queen’s Award-winning Warwick Music Group, who care passionately about making the joy of music accessible and fun. Instant digital downloads of their most popular sheet music titles have been made available for free until the end of June. Pieces include the top ten best-selling music titles and the full instrumental range of Music Marvels for students.
Their CEO, Steven Greenall, said:
“In these challenging times when making music together has become more difficult, our team and composers have worked in partnership to support the musical community. Digital downloads are remote and instant, and by making these free we can support teachers, students and parents with remote learning or online lessons.”
Composer, former member of the London Symphony Orchestra and founder of the British Trombone Society Peter Gane has applauded the move, saying it is an “excellent initiative from which I hope everyone will benefit.”
Adrian Taylor, trombonist, conductor, instrumental teacher and composer, agreed saying: “During this unprecedented time of self-isolation it’s inspiring to see how music is playing such a significant role in keeping us all going. Through music making we will get through this!”
Customers have been quick to share their delight and thanks. Frank Meredith, trombone instructor at Colgate University said ‘Thank you again for your terrific catalogue and service. Your pricing policy has allowed me to buy more music, and your scores and mp3 files help me to discover new music’.
Nick Dolling, Assistant Principal at Musica Kirklees, agreed saying – “A huge thank you for this goodwill gesture from all our staff, and no doubt our pupils!”
