or telephone 0300 123 4048.
WHAT IF I DON'T HAVE AN INSTRUMENT?
Students are expected to have their own instrument for lessons and for practising at home. The school has a small stock of instruments that can be lent out to students who want to try out playing one before they commit to buying. You could also consider hiring an instrument from a local instrument retailer eg Britannia Music in St Albans or Stable Yard Music in Hatfield. When you do decide to go ahead and buy, you could use the Assisted Instrument Purchase Scheme (for details click here
) or buy second-hand. Always ask your instrument teacher for advice when deciding what to buy.
