Marimba Hire

ONZA offers to its members the opportunity to apply for hireage of Marimbas.

The purpose of this service to ONZA members is to provide instruments to schools in which a dedicated music teacher wishes to demonstrate the suitability and value of such instruments in establishing a hands-on music programme. By demonstrating this to the school community and its leaders, it is envisaged that funding may be secured for the purchase of instruments to support an on-going music programme.

Application for hireath_Marimbage in 2017 is open to current ONZA members. Please note the deadline for applications is 11 November. All applications will be considered by a sub-committee of the ONZA Executive chaired by the Vice-President or a nominee. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by the 30th November.
Factors taken into account for the hireage of instruments include the following

  • Evidence of ONZA membership by the school
  • Evidence of on-going commitment by the school leadership to the music programme
  • Availability of teaching expertise in the Orff-based participatory approach to music education
  • School participation in community events, which will feature marimba and/or other barred instruments such as the Marimba Festival, Strum Strike and Blow
