Instruments (non-keyboard) within the school's inventory are available for registered student and faculty use, with priority given to music majors. Non-music majors must provide proof of enrollment in a UNLV music ensemble. The rental inventory includes woodwind, brass, and string instruments for use in instrumental class method courses, ensembles, master classes, and special performances or uses. The instruments are housed in HFA 236 and are administered by the school through the Property Manager, a designated graduate teaching assistant, assigned to the collection.
Special interest instrument (see below) rentals will require a request and approval from faculty related to the proposed use of the instrument.
Non-keyboard instrument inventory checkout forms are available in the instrument inventory office, HFA 236. Complete the checkout form(s) and include payment in cash or check made out to UNLV Board of Regents. Proof of ensemble or private lesson enrollment, UNLV student identification, and a valid drivers license may also be requested upon checkout. This process must be repeated each semester an instrument is issued. Please take a moment to read the fine print of the Instrument Rental Contract.
