Renting Saves You Money!
"I'm not sure they'll stick with it!" This is the main concern that parents of beginning band students
express to us. We have designed a rental program that solves this issue and makes the parents&and
children, feel more comfortable with their choice.
With our rental program, you can exchange your instrument at any time. This allows your child to find the
instrument that is the perfect instrument...for them. Renting an instrument allows you to exchange an instrument
for another with no loss of credit if they change their mind. Wouldn't it have been nice if you could have
exchanged that tennis racket for a soccer uniform?
No, risk, no obligation! All of our rental agreements are month-to-month.
No long term contract, no cancellation penalties, no minimum rental period.
Renting also gives your child a year to learn how to take care of an instrument. We offer
maintenance and replacement coverage on all of our instruments. High quality starter level
instruments like the one you will rent from us are designed to be easy for beginners to play and stand up
to rough handling by inexperienced players.
You have over a year to determine if your child will be successful and desires to stay with the band program
before committing to a purchase. We will give you all of the rental monies that you pay
towards the rental instrument towards the purchase of a high quality performance level instrument. A
performance level instrument will allow them to continue to play throughout middle school, into high school
and even college.

Don't be fooled by stores who only carry instruments once a year. Where will they be when you need help?
Give your child a chance!
Music educators and parents have shown concern over the appearance of cheap and poorly made
instruments in national chain stores. These instruments are made of inferior materials and feature
poor workmanship that allows them to be sold at very low prices. They are difficult to play and
often impossible to repair-guaranteeing your child will not succeed in band. Rent or purchase your
instrument from an Educator approved Music Store that wants every child to succeed.
