Instrument Hire

An affordable way to help your child to start their musical journey.

Hire an instrument from us whilst your child is learning to play. As their needs change, simply return it to us and exchange for an upgrade. If you are applying for lessons with us, you can request instrument hire as part of the sign-up process.
