It happens to everyone. You pass a music store and think, ‘Yeah, I should play the [insert ill-advised music instrument here].’ Now, thanks to a program sponsored by Sun Life Financial, you can indulge any tone-deaf whim without breaking the bank. The Canadian firm has sponsored pilot musical instrument lending libraries at the Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver public libraries. You can sign out an instrument—anything from an acoustic guitar to a xylophone—for up to nine weeks. That’s more than enough time to figure out that tune from Deliverance.
