Take It Away

We are proud to announce that Windblowers is a registered participant of the Art Councils Take it away scheme. Take it away is an Arts Council initiative designed to help more people get involved in learning and playing music. The scheme allows individuals between the ages of 18 and 25 to apply for a loan of up to £2,000 for the purchase of any kind of musical instrument, and pay it back in nine monthly installments, completely interest free.

The scheme has been extended to allow anyone to purchase an instrument for someone aged under 18. Please enquire for more details.

Students can now save money when buying an instrument with Windblowers.
