Reasons for hiring an instrument

  • Try before you buy - A great way to try out an instrument before purchasing one of your own. Then, if you decided that you would rather play another instrument, then they are easily exchangeable.
  • No maintenance costs - All instruments that Symphony Tuition hire are in good condition and will be provided to you in working order.  You can relax in the knowledge that should small repairs/adjustments need fixing, then they are carried out at no cost to you. The only requirements are that repairs due to damage done while in your care, are charged, although these repairs will be at a reasonable cost. 
  • Suitable for growing children - Nuvo instruments are ideal for small children as they are lightweight, durable and easy to clean. Hiring Nuvo instruments allows for little fingers to be able to access the instrument of their choice before they have grown enough and are ready to progress onto a full size instrument. Click here to find out more about the clarineo.

  • Affordable - the initial outlay of buying an instrument can be very expensive.  Hiring remains a very affordable option, with easy monthly payments.
  • Rent to buy - If after 6 -12 months, you decide that you love your instrument and wish to own it outright, the rental payments will be deducted off the cost of the instrument and all you have to do is pay  off the remaining balance and you will own your own instrument.
  • Free Rental - Book and pay upfront for 10 lessons and rent your instrument for free!
