MAG loans instruments to budding musicians

The Musicians Association of Gibraltar (MAG) has launched their new Instrument Loan Program in order to help students of all ages who might be interested in learning a musical instrument.

“We understand that learning a musical instrument can be an expensive endeavour, and to this effect we have asked the general public for donations of instruments in order to establish a program where we can loan these or a period of three months at no cost to the student,” said a statement from MAG.

“We have had a great response and are very grateful for these donations and already received a number of guitars.”

These have been refurbished at no cost by MAG’s in house guitar technician Ernest Slade from Slade's Guitar Services.

“The program will allow the student to learn their instrument and evaluate whether or not they wish to continue learning at no cost to them,” said the statement.

“Further the program promotes environmental awareness as many of these instruments have been repaired and recycled instead of having them disposed of.”

The association are still requesting donations of any instruments no matter the condition, especially keyboards.
