Musical studies require that each student purchases their own instrument. However, for the first study year, it is possible to loan an instrument from the music institute. If certain financial conditions are met, it may also be possible to loan certain instruments for multiple years.
Depending on the instrument, loan fees range from 60 € to 200 €. The most common fee is approx. 70 €. Loan fees are paid and collected per school year.

The loan instrument office is at our Patotie service location in Myyrmäki (Patotie 2). Its contact person is Janitor Pekka Rautiainen, tel. 050 314 6370
Please always begin by discussing the possible loan with your teacher.
If you want to borrow an instrument:
- Begin by contacting, and meeting with, your teacher.
- They will tell you what kind of instrument you need, including (for string instruments) its optimal size.
- If you decide to borrow the instrument, send a message to:
- Your name
- The name of your teacher
- The instrument you want to borrow, including its size (and other relevant details)
- The reason why you wish to lend the instrument
- You will be contacted as soon as possible to inform you whether a suitable instrument is available for loan.
Our policy is that students should only lend instruments for the first study year, after which they should purchase their own instrument.
When you receive the instrument, you must sign a loan agreement. By signing it, you agree to comply with its terms and conditions. If you are a minor, the agreement must be signed by your parent or guardian.
The music institute is responsible for all the basic maintenance required for the loaned instruments, and all the instruments are provided in good condition. During the loan period, you are responsible for replacing all of the instrument’s consumables and parts which may break or go missing (such as strings, bows, cases, straps, etc.) and the related replacement or repair expenses. If the instrument cannot be repaired or is lost, you must compensate its full value as indicated in the loan agreement to VMO.
The instrument must be returned to the music institute no later than on end date of the agreed loan period. At the end of the loan period, your teacher will check the instrument. If the loanee discontinues their studies at the music institute, the loaned instrument must be returned immediately.
The full loan fee of the complete school year will be invoiced in October. Paid loan fees will not be reimbursed.
Loan instruments are not insured by the Vantaa Music Institute. As the instrument’s loanee, you are liable for the instrument fully and up to its full value. The instrument’s up-to-date value is included in its loan agreement. It is up to the loanee to decide whether the instrument should be insured for the duration of the loan period.
