From whichever angle you approach the issue – educational, pastoral, financial, or the strategic business perspective – optimal performance of the instrument fleet should be a primary target for any educational establishment. Having better instruments of the appropriate quality, in perfect condition, available to your students, is good news for the student, the music teacher, the bursar/finance director, principal and marketing team alike.
A well-managed instrument portfolio, with a planned maintenance and renewal/replacement schedule delivers:
• Better academic results
• Greater musicality
• More confident performance
• Positive enthusiasm for practice
• Better use of capital
• Distinct competitive advantage
