Why Rent

The main concern that parents of beginning band students express to us is they aren’t sure their children will, “stick with it.” We have designed our rental programs to solve this issue and allow parents and beginning students to feel more comfortable with their choice.

  • With our rental programs, 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.
  • No, risk, no obligation! Our rental programs have no long term contract, no cancellation penalties, no minimum rental period.
  • Renting also gives your child the opportunity to learn how to take care of an instrument. We offer maintenance 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 inexperience players.
  • You have up to 13 months 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.
