New Pupils – Instrument Hires September 2019

Your child is starting music lessons in September. Do they need an instrument? If so, instruments can be hired from Severn Arts at a cost of £32 per term.

Please bear in mind that September is the busiest time of year for our instruments team. As well as parental hires we have a large volume of school hires to deliver. To manage this it is necessary for us to impose a deadline, so be sure to order early to avoid disappointment.


  • Instruments requested and paid for by Friday 23rd August will be delivered ready for the first lesson.
  • Instruments ordered between 24th August – 9th September will be delivered by 30th September
  • Instruments ordered between 10th September and 11th October will be delivered as soon as possible before October Half Term.
  • All instrument hires are processed and delivered on a first come first served basis and are added to the list once payment is received (unless the hire is on remissions). We normally advise a two week wait, however this may be a little longer during September.
  • Please be aware that we have a limited stock of more specialist instruments (e.g short reach bassoons, curved head flutes). If the instrument that you require is out of stock, we will contact you and add your request to a waiting list.

What happens if I miss the deadline?

  • Don’t panic! Our teaching staff are well prepared for new pupils who do not have instruments yet. The first lessons are usually introductory and more theory based, so your child can still have a valuable lesson.
  • Order an instrument as soon as possible. Please be aware of the timescales listed above
