Why hire? Musical instruments can be expensive, both to buy and maintain. Hiring an instrument is a relatively small cost when compared to the new purchase price. Hiring allows the student to begin the learning process without the large initial cost. It means you can return the instrument if you wish to buy your own instrument or if it just doesn’t work out.
