    Terms and Conditions (please read carefully)
    • Instruments are subject to availability following receipt of an application form. Hire is charged termly via invoice.

    • To complete instrument hire arrangements, parents must contact their local music centre to arrange an appropriate time to collect the instrument. When you no longer need the instrument it must be returned to one of our music centres.

    • Students are assigned a specific instrument using an instrument ID number. The safekeeping, insurance and maintenance of this instrument is the responsibility of the hirer. Please note that standard household insurance may not cover an instrument left unsupervised in a vehicle. The instrument should be stored away from direct sources of heat and light and protected from extreme weather conditions. Replacement of strings, pads etc during the hire period are the responsibility of the hirer. Any accidental damage or loss of the instrument should be reported to the music centre immediately and further advice may be given on how to proceed. The instrument will be checked at the start and end of the hire period and by the child’s tutor during the hire period. Any servicing or repairs as a result of fair wear and tear will be carried out by the music centre. Any additional repair costs may be passed on to the hirer, if deemed necessary.

    • Instruments may be used for any concert or other musical event at a music centre, school, home or other venue but our specific permission must be sought before taking it abroad.

    • The Buckinghamshire Music Trust is registered with the Data Protection Registrar’s Office and will not use or share any information given by the school outside the organisation without the express permission of the parent concerned.

    The hire charge will be included in your termly invoice.
