WMG on a mission to get people picking up an instrument for the first time for Make Music Month

The team behind the world’s first plastic trombone, the pBone, is on a mission to get as many people as possible to pick up an instrument for the first time.

As part of Make Music Month, Warwick Music Group (WMG) plans to encourage all those who've yet to play music to give it a go.

WMG’s first-time initiative will run throughout June and coincides with worldwide activities and promotions such as the celebration of UK-wide BBC Music Day on 15th June, worldwide celebration Make Music Day on 21st June and charity Music for All’s Learn to Play Day on 24-25th June. 

WMG – the company behind the award winning pBone, pTrumpet and pBuzz – is offering 10 people in the UK and a further 10 in the US a chance to "pick up a pBone and play". The music company is loaning instruments for free to help people begin their musical journeys in June.

“With funding for music education in schools increasingly at risk, the opportunity to start learning a musical instrument is a luxury for many. 37% of UK schoolchildren have never had a lesson on a musical instrument,” revealed WMG.

“It is more important now than ever to place value on learning an instrument, and this June, Warwick Music Group wants to encourage as many aspiring musicians as possible to dedicate June as Make Music Month.”

To take part in Make Music Month, all you need to qualify is to be a non-musician or absolute beginner, and send a few lines about why you’d love to start your pBone or pBuzz journey to

“Now is the perfect opportunity to start to play in 30 days, with support and guidance from the team of musicians at Warwick Music Group and with online tutorials to assist,” said WMG.
