The Music and Performing Arts Service offers an instrumental hire scheme for pupils and schools in North East Lincolnshire.

At the moment we have a special starter scheme for beginners who can hire an instrument at no cost for a maximum period of one year. After this time if they join a hub ensemble group they will continue to have free hire whilst they remain a member. If not then the normal hire fee would apply.

Please email the project officer at for further details and forms.

If stock is available we can also hire at a higher cost to  young people outside of our authority. The starter scheme is not available to young people outside of our authority.

Schools/Teachers/Community groups

We have a stock of whole class instruments available for short term and long term hire by schools, academies, and the community. The hire is subject to the sessions being run by an approved tutor, trained class teacher or an accredited tutor.
For further information on the above including hire fees please contact the project officer at
