Instrument Hire

Sutton Music Service currently has over one thousand musical instruments in its popular Instrument Hire scheme, enabling a large number of children and young people to learn a musical instrument at a subsidised cost. The cost, for all instruments, is £32 per term.


Instruments can only be hired for the use of children attending and taking instrumental lessons at a London Borough of Sutton maintained school, or who are members of Music Service ensembles.


The instruments in our hire scheme include: violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, french horn, tenor horn, baritone, euphonium and tuba.

Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme (AIPS)

Sutton Music Service is no longer able to offer an Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme, though we are very happy to offer advice on suitable makes and models and suggest local and national retailers. Assisted Instrument Purchase Schemes are available at many schools - please contact your child's school for advice.
