Hire an Instrument
There are lots of factors to consider when deciding with your child what instrument they would like to learn, such as which instruments are taught at their school and which are available to hire out from us. More importantly they should think about what type of instrument most appeals to them!
For all other instruments you are able to hire an instrument from CMA when you start lessons.
We recommend that once your child has been learning for more than one year, that you consider purchasing a instrument. When you wish to buy one you can use our Instrument Assisted Purchase Scheme where you can buy the instrument free of VAT.
Why hire an instrument?
Hiring an instrument is designed to let beginners try out their chosen instrument before their parents/carers buy one.
Having an instrument at home to practise on is crucial to the development of the pupil.
We have a limited number of instruments and availability of an instrument cannot be guaranteed.
Instrument hire is NOT available for: piano, keyboard, ukulele, recorder, guitar, saxophone or drum kit
