Instrument Rentals

Our Rental Program offers quality violin, viola and cello outfits of all sizes for rent. All instruments are professionally set up in our own workshop and are maintained by us throughout the rental period at no extra charge. Outfits include instrument, bow, case and quality strings, and are set up to the standard of instruments sold in our shop.


It is very important that children build technique and good habits on instruments that are suited to their size. As there are many sizes (8 for violin), it is sometimes preferable to rent instruments, as these may be exchanged at any time for a larger instrument at no additional cost.


Teachers are able to concentrate on their student’s needs rather than having to spend time making adjustments to substandard instruments. All instruments are set up for ease of playing and quality of tone, making the experience more enjoyable and productive for both student and teacher alike
