About Us

The aim of TAF Music is to help musicians (and parents of younger musicians) with their musical needs as well as providing a website to give second hand musical instruments and used printed music a new lease of life!

The TAF Music website was developed by Malcolm Allaway, a web programmer with a long involvement in music. His background in live concert audio and radio production has, through the years, brought him into contact with a range of musicians. As his own children have progressed along their individual musical journeys, he has entered into many discussion with parents trying to resource musical instruments for their children. To put all of this together, he has developed this website where you may find answers to these questions:

As this site progresses, and people add their instruments and printed music for sale, teachers and musical-related business add their details, we will have a resource that will meet all of these needs.

Our aim is to make this a useful place for musicians, their parents, buyers, sellers, teachers and others who work together to ensure the performance of live music continues.
