The Trade Body for the UK Musical Instrument Industry


Since 1997 Musicguard has been providing specialist music insurance cover for a wide range of musicians - from those actively gigging, producers, DJs, sound engineers and music teachers.

We understand that household insurance may not provide some of the key benefits musicians may need, especially when performing or teaching. That’s why we offer a specialist music insurance solution.

As well as ensuring musicians have the cover they need; we also support local music stores and businesses through our Partnership Scheme.

The Musicguard Partnership Scheme aims to allow your business to generate extra revenue, whilst providing cover for your customers.

Benefits for your store include:

  • Commission share on each policy referral
  • Claims Replacement opportunity – helping keep your customers with you
  • Commission share every year your customer renews their insurance with us
  • Easy and straightforward to integrate into your business
  • Access to a range of commercial insurance products
