For many years, educationalists have realised the importance of musical instrument tuition in the development of children. The satisfaction gained by musical progression in a child’s development is reflected in a tremendous increase in confidence and motivation.

However, with schools working to limited budgets in all departments, many children are not given the opportunity to study a musical instrument because schools cannot afford sufficient numbers of instruments to cater for demand, having to work to ‘FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED’. Some children who miss the opportunity to play a musical instrument will have musical talents which remain undiscovered, not to mention missing out on years of fun.

The Scheme

Here’s how it works:

The hirer completes a rental agreement and Standing Order form. At this time the hirer agrees to keep the instrument and pay for the instrument for the minimum hire period. The initial payment is taken at this time and all subsequent rental payments are collected by Standing Order every 3 months.

  • Return Options

Just return the instrument to the shop in good condition. (Advance rental charges cannot be refunded)

  • Purchase Options

The instrument can be purchased at any time, with 50% of all rental charges deducted from the price (up to a maximum of 7 payments). After 8 payments have been made the instrument is yours to keep.
