Hire an Instrument

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced musician, you will need an instrument whether to play regularly or to use whilst yours is repaired etc.

Hire prices range from £30.00 - £90.00 per year depending on the type of instrument (as below). Students who are members of LMCT Ensembles can hire an instrument free of charge during their membership. Students who join an LMCT Area Centre will be able to hire an instrument at half price during their membership.

If you need an instrument for a short period of time, or are an organisation wanting to use a number of instruments for a project or performance, please contact us to let us know what you need - we may be able to help!

Please complete the instrument request form below and we will contact you to advise on what happens next.

Upon arranging and collecting your hired instrument, you will be asked to complete a Hire Agreement form and be given a copy of our Terms and Conditions.
