What is the Instrument Hire Scheme?

The Instrument Hire scheme is being introduced to ensure that instruments are made accessible to children and young people in ways that will continue to support participation and progression.

What and how to hire

You can hire a … Cello, Double Bass, Guitar, Clarinet, Violin, Viola, Flute, Oboe, Bassoon, Trumpet / Cornet, Saxophone, Horn, Trombone, Euphonium and Baritone and Tuba.  Most instruments are in stock and available for immediate collection.  We can deliver to LEA/Academy schools at the start of the Spring, Summer and Autumn term

Make sure to ask your instrumental teacher for advice on the correct instrument to suit your child (some come in different sizes).
If you live outside of Swindon you can still hire an instrument from us.  Simply complete the Out of Borough Instrument Request Form.  You will be required to pay a £50 refundable deposit, as well as the hire costs.
