Instrument maintenance and using Music Service instruments

We ask that students take care of the instruments on loan. Instruments may look robust however they can be easily damaged.

Spring Concert

If you have any queries or something goes wrong with the instrument on loan, either take the instrument to your tutor or contact your local office.

DO NOT attempt to repair the instrument or arrange for the repair of the instrument yourself. The Music Service will carry out all necessary repairs to instruments.

Please note that if damage of an instrument is not the result of normal wear and tear then a charge may be made.

Instruments on loan are for sole use by students that are either taught by the Music Service or attend one of the EA Music Service Bands or Orchestras. The instruments must be returned when a student withdraws from having tuition or stops attending our ensembles.
