How Do I Get An Instrument?
The service owns a stock of instruments which are available to hire or loaned free of charge to families who are eligible. Priority is given to children learning under the Subsidised Tuition Scheme. We also have a stock of larger and more expensive instruments such as double basses, oboes, bassoons and French horns. If you are interested in finding out more about obtaining an instrument through us, please tick the box on the tuition application form.
Instruments are also available from a variety of local music shops. For useful information about purchasing a musical instrument please refer to the Music Industries Association Guide.
We recommend that you do not arrange to hire or purchase an instrument wait until your child’s teacher has confirmed when lessons will begin.
