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.  Percussion packs are also available for budding young drummers.  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.

    
To hire, download our student hire form or adult hire form and return it to us.  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 Gloucestershire you can still hire an instrument from us.  Simply download the out of county hire form and return to us along with your payment (plus a £50 refundable deposit).  

 

If you are in a hurry, call the office (01452 427242) to check the availability of the instrument that you require and when you would like to collect it.
