Musical Instrument Hire

Students are responsible for the hired instrument in their possession. Reasonable care must be taken against the instrument being lost, stolen or damaged. The instrument must be left in a safe place both at school and away from school. Students should report any instrument damage to their teacher immediately. 

If an instrument is lost or damaged due to lack of reasonable care, the student will be responsible for the cost of repairs or replacement. Instrument accessories such as reeds, strings, valve oil, sticks, etc. are the student’s responsibility and will not be covered by the hire fee.
