We strongly advise that students use a hard case to transport their instrument to and from the Academy to offer the best possible protection for the instrument. The case must be clearly labelled with the student’s name. Students are responsible for ensuring their instrument is stored safely. The Academy will not be held responsible for damage caused due to improper storage or unsuitable protection.
