Nobody will be excluded from the opportunity to participate in Now Hear This! activities based on their ability to pay.
I offer a Pay-What-You-Choose option to help ensure music making is open to all. No proof of financial status is required. It is important to me that you join in with making music when you want, not just when you can. This offer extends to every group activity I run and is based upon trust and honesty.
It is important to me that you pay what you think is fair to yourself, your family, and the group. If you pay less than you would like to, or don’t pay anything, what you still bring is you, which is what we all want.
If you pay more, either regularly or as a one-off, you help the group keep going, not just for those who can pay less, but for all of us, whether we’re in good times or bad.
For drop-in activities I prefer to take payment on the day, before the session starts. I have a card machine which accepts most debit and credit cards, as well as Apple Pay and Google Pay. I will also have a QR code on display which you can scan with your phone. It will take you directly to my “Pay-What-You-Choose” page on PayPal where you can type in the amount that suits you.
I prefer not to accept cash, but don’t let that put you off – just try to bring exact change please 🙂
