Online music school, Your Space Music Lessons has launched a new drive to make music tuition easier for families to access. In a new partnership with ‘rent to buy’ instrument service Duet Shop, new orchestral instruments can be obtained from just £7.50 per month.

For families who find it hard to budget for instruments and have little time to access quality tuition, the hope is that this partnership will enable more children and adults to learn from a broad range of orchestral instruments in their own home.
