We have worked with Normans Musical Instruments to put together bespoke instrument packages specifically for parents, with options to suit most circumstances and budgets. Both packages include:



Call to action


The ideal choice for parents wanting to give their child the opportunity to start lessons without the need for a large upfront payment.

Pay for the package monthly and after 24 payments everything is yours to keep.

Once 3 payments have been made, the instrument can be returned with no further commitment.

See below for recorder information.
Call to action


With this option you own the instrument outright from the beginning.

A 75% refund of the package price is guaranteed if the instrument is returned within six months of the first lesson.

See below for recorder information.

Important information

Mini Clarinets - If your child is too small for the full sized Clarinet, please choose Mini Clarinet instead.  You will be paying for the full-sized instrument, but a refurbished mini clarinet will be loaned to your child until your MfSF tutor advises that they are ready to swap. There is no extra charge for the mini clarinet, however, when the time comes to swap to the full size clarinet you will need to return it to Normans at a cost of approximately £10. Once the mini clarinet is received, Normans will send the brand new full size clarinet to a delivery address of your choice.

Curved Head Flute - This instrument is supplied with both a curved and a straight headjoint so there is no need to swap.

The Flute and Curved Head Flute are both supplied with the Abracadabra tuition book in addition to the Standard of Excellence book.  

Recorders are £20 to buy outright and are not available on a monthly basis.  Recorders are supplied with the Vamoosh tuition book instead of the Standard of Excellence book.  They do not qualify for the half price lesson offer or the 75% buy back scheme.  However, if you purchase a recorder you will be eligible for a 5% discount off a future MfSF Normans instrument purchase.

If your child wishes to swap to a different instrument in the same price band you can do so at no extra cost.  If the instrument is in a different price band contact Normans to see if there is any difference to pay.
