Violin and Cello hire can be utilised throughout the music programme as with increasing size the child will be measured and given an appropriately sized instrument. However, when they require a full sized instrument this will need to be purchased by their parents. To give fair opportunities to all children within the programme all other instruments have a two-year hire period, after which time if the child wishes to continue to play their parent will need to purchase an instrument of their own, with advice from their teacher. Please note that unlike all other instruments the pocket trumpet is only available for hire for one year and recorders, pianos and guitars are not available for hire from the Music Programme.
