"This is a wonderful initiative to encourage more people to purchase their own musical instrument."

– Susan, Take it away Customer

"During these difficult times, the ability to finance a musical instrument using the Take it Away Scheme has been extremely helpful. Without this scheme we would have struggled to purchase the piano with one payment. This has also given my children the opportunity to learn to play the piano during lockdown. Thank you for your service.”

– Paul

"I would not have been able to purchase a flute without Take it away."

– Annabel

“The Take it away scheme enabled me to purchase a piano for my daughter which just wouldn't have been possible. I am delighted that she is having so much enjoyment playing her piano and is hoping to do her grade 2 in the next few weeks.”

– Leon

"Great scheme as it allowed my son to get a nice flute for an intermediate player. I would have been reluctant to pay out right on my credit card as I would have incurred some interest."

– Zoe

"Just a thank you for allowing us this opportunity to buy a quality flute!"

– Adam

"Very easy to do and saved us paying for the instrument all at once."

– Lisa

"Take it away really helped leverage the purchase of my child's keyboard.”

– Sam

"I would like to recommend Take it away as it provided our two children with instruments which gave them amazing experiences and opportunities over the years.

Without the scheme, we would have found it difficult to buy instruments of the quality needed to enable them to realise their musical abilities."

– Jennifer, Take it away Customer
