Hire Requests for Autumn 2013
For applications received in June, July and August, we will aim
to deliver during the first two weeks of the new academic year,
subject to instrument availability.
For applications received in September, while we would normally
aim to deliver within two weeks of receiving the form, due to a
high volume of instrument deliveries for project work during
September, there may be a delay.
Instruments available to hire are:
|| Woodwind Instruments

Trumpet / Cornet
Euphonium / Baritone horn
The termly hire fee includes the following support services:
- Instrument Insurance – All instruments hired are automatically
covered by Worcestershire Youth Music's insurance policy when at
home, in school or in transit.
- Collection and Delivery of instruments at school – When you
begin hiring from us, we will deliver your instrument to your
child's school. When an instrument needs repairing or, in the
case of string instruments, a larger instrument is required, we
will collect your instrument and deliver a new one. When you need
to return the instrument to us, we will also collect it directly
from the school.
- Repairs and Service – Our instruments are repaired and serviced
by in-house technicians. Whenever an instrument requires a repair
we try to ensure that a replacement is provided.
