Instrument hire scheme

27 January 2017

Through our instrument hire scheme, you can rent an instrument for one term or until you leave school. We have a wide range of high quality instruments, from flutes to double basses. We even have smaller sized instruments to suit smaller musicians.

We offer extremely favourable rates and a 50% discount for people in receipt of certain benefits. This scheme is aimed at young musicians (aged up to 21, who live or study in Essex).


To register for instrument hire.


Please note that this service gets busy at the beginning of term and extra time should be allowed for delivery. We do not guarantee availability of instruments or delivery dates.

 

Please be aware there is a £10 per instrument delivery charge, however if you would like to collect for free from Essex Music Services at County Hall, Chelmsford, then please call us to arrange a time.
