Instrument Hire

At St Columba Anglican School, we strive to provide opportunities for students to choose their own path and support their interests as best as we can.

Our instrument program is increasing in popularity, with many students partaking in one or more of our Instrumental programs or engaging in private tuition on Campus.

St Columba Anglican School stocks a range of brass, woodwind and stringed instruments available for hire through the Performing Arts Department. Instruments will be supplied for hire, in a well-maintained and clean condition, with the relevant accessories — such as mouthpieces, cleaning cloths, neck-straps, shoulder rests, bows, resin etc.

Some are limited in number; please email the Performing Arts team to enquire about specific instruments.
