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.

Hire Fees

We offer different rates of hire depending if your child is learning with us or not. Members of our Music Centre who have external tuition may also hire instruments at the lower rate.

All hire is subject to availability and payment of hire deposit, where required.

Important Info:

Replacement strings, reeds, oils and grease are paid for by the hirer. For help and support, please contact us.

For Group 3 instruments, you must provide a copy of a relevant insurance document before the start of the hire period.
