Press Release: MLC Partners with Fair Deal Music

The Music Learning Collective teams up with one of the UK’s largest independent music retailers, Fair Deal Music, to help their Students find the right gear.

In the latest development of their unique music education platform the Music Learning Collective (MLC), in partnership with Fair Deal Music, has launched an online retail offer, stocked with an incredible selection of products designed to support Students regardless of their age, ability or budget. Whether they’re starting out, or sharpening up, the MLC aims to stock the gear that students need.

The MLC online retail offer provides great gear for all of our Students’ needs.

In this exciting new development, Students will now be able to buy new instruments and music gear directly through the MLC online platform, including pianos, drums, guitars, amps and accessories, with more products available over the coming weeks/months. Working closely with Fair Deal Music as well as the other brands involved, the MLC has been able to select a range of instruments, gear and accessories that are tried and tested in helping Students along their way to becoming successful musicians.

School Music Departments that have partnered with the MLC will also benefit via their MLC School Fund in receiving preferential pricing that enables their budgets to go further. By drawing on the different strengths within the Music Industry, the MLC continues to combine several sectors (education, manufacturing and now retail) into a compelling offer that is unique to their Students.

Commenting on the launch of the retail partnership, MLC Director of Education, Simon Brown states that:

“A musician’s choice of instrument is really personal and can often play a fundamental role in their progress and, ultimately, the sound or musical style they establish. At the MLC, we aim to help our students to discover the gear that inspires them, so that they can develop the skills and techniques to fulfil their own aspirations. Being able to recommend the right gear by some of the most trusted brands in the Music Industry has always been central to our approach, and being able to partner with such a well-respected and customer-focused retailer means this latest extension to our offer is a real win for our Students, their families and the ever-tightening school budgets.”

Punit Singh, Finance Manager at Fair Deal Music says:

“At Fair Deal Music we are excited about being the online retailer for the Music Learning Collective. As an established family-run business our core principles are centred around placing customer needs first. We’re passionate about inspiring the next generation of musicians and bringing music education into the digital space.”

Partnering with Marshall Amplification, RSL Awards and HAL Leonard in 2020, Lâg Guitars in 2021 and now Fair Deal Music in 2022, the Music Learning Collective is quickly becoming one of the leading providers in music education both in the UK and further afield.
