Our popular 'Rent to Buy' scheme gives you the opportunity to try a good quality instrument before making the decision to purchase or try something else. It is fundamentally important that a student has something of good enough quality to give them a fighting chance to continue - many shiny instruments are available these days at tempting prices that are only good as ornaments! General maintenance is free over the rental period as well so you can always be sure the instrument you have is in tip-top playing condition.
