The Business Memebership Scheme provides tangible benefits to your employees as well as your business through an affordable, personal service anywhere in the world and for any ability.

Music education has been shown to have a number of positive effects on people of any age. It can increase creative thinking and decrease stress and anxiety. It helps employee retention and acquisition as well as allowing your employees the opportunity to discover the music in them.

 BENEFITS TO BUSINESS 

 

 

We're here to help you retain your best employees and to get the best talent for your vacant roles. 

 

Employee benefits schemes and perks have been shown to keep talented staff in their roles for longer as they permiate well beyond the confines of their jobs. Perks don't just have to be personal rewards, they can also expand the access to opportunities they have while working at their organisation.

 

Businesses need to be competitive to ensure the best candidates apply for the roles and that once they become employees they remain in their roles and grow with the business. The right employment benefits are key to getting the right candidates, employees and overall workforce. 

 

 

 

People who are happy in their jobs have increased productivity.

 

Music training in adults has shown to encourage an increase in listening, perception and neural encoding as well as memory and auditory attention*, all of which can benefit their job roles and more broadly the businesses they work for.

 

People who engage in creative education have enhanced creative thinking in both their personal and professional lives. Productivity, efficiancy and team work are all positively effected by music tuition.

 

 

You're going to pay your tax anyway so why not use some of it to benefit your employees?

 

If your financial arrangements allow, the Business Membership Scheme can be cost neutral by off setting it against corporation (or equivilant) tax. As an employee benefit it can also be set against the employees' tax but any taxation is decided entirely by the business itself.

 

Various external funding opportunities for health, wellbeing and employee development can be access periodically which allow businesses to apply for specific funding from local authorities or funding bodies. For more information ask your local authority. 

 

 

We know time and resources are limited so we deal with everything for you. 

 

The process of implimenting a scheme like the Business Membership Scheme can seem like a large undertaking, espeically if your workforce is worldwide or if there are a lot of employees to engage with. 

 

Once we come to a partnership agreement we deal with everything from the administration to employee onboarding and all scheduling. We have templates for you to issue to your workforce to gain their interest or we can help you with what to ask if you want to do it yourself. Once they are informed of the scheme, your employees come to us directly without needing to take up valuable resource from your teams. 

 

We can engage with the relavent contact (or department) to issue regular updates on numbers and feedback but we are flexible on the frequency (quarterly as default) and detail of that depending what you want (or have time) to go through with us.

 BENEFITS TO EMPLOYEES 

 

 

People are always looking for opportunities to learn, develop and grow.

 

The very act of learning has been shown to increase wellbeing, mental health, productivity and efficiancy. It also decreases stress and anxiety by providing a structure which allows them to control their own time and results in a new skill. 

 

For many people learning an instrument is a dream come true. If they can access the opportunity to do so as an employment perk of your business they will have more overall engagement which will inevitably increased employee retention and enable more efficiant talent aquisition regardless of the size of the business or the roles within it.

 

 

Music is everywhere, all the time and we often take it for granted. 

 

Music has a function in reducing stress in our everyday lives by the simple act of listening to it, however learning music compounds the effect of lessening anxiety and bloody pressure as well as improving mood and a general feeling of fulfilment*.

 

Mental health and wellbeing is an ever more important aspect of our working lives and any business which can support their employees positive state of mind can be rewarded with an increase in employee retention, talent aquisition, productivity and efficiancy.

Hard skills get the job, soft skills get the promotion.

 

Whether it's improving the voice in presentations or on sales calls, improving time management or increasing mental plasticity and creativity learning an instrument can enhance the skills important to any business.

 

Soft skills are often overlooked but are an integral part of any job. From becoming better team players* to encouraging increased confidence, music tuition has been shown time and time again to enhance soft skills in people of all ages and abilities.
