Replacement instrument

If your instrument is damaged or develops a problem, or if your child needs a larger sized stringed instrument as they grow, Severn Arts will provide a replacement instrument free of charge. Simply contact our office and an exchange date will be agreed. You will need to return the instrument to the school reception by the exchange date, so that we can collect it at the same time as leaving a replacement.
