Making Music Makes a Difference

It's a fact! Music is more than just's good for you.

  • Music students understand language and math more easily.
  • Making music gives kids a place to belong and succeed.
  • Music students learn teamwork and develop strong social skills.
  • Music students score higher on college entrance exams.

Here's How Instrument Rental Works

Purchase a Starter Pack

This includes everything your student needs to succeed. For $39.95 you receive your required method book, care accessories, and use of the instrument for the first month. Additionally, you will get to choose a music stand, available in a variety of colors, or a metronome/tuner.

Rent Your Instrument

Make monthly rental payments until you own it or until you return it. Automatic monthly billing options are available, so you never forget to make a payment.

Easy Exchange and Upgrade Option

When your child is ready, you may transfer payments from your beginning level instrument to an advanced level instrument while continuing to make monthly payments.

Service Protection Coverage

We'll take care of routine repairs, accidental damage and loss due to fire or theft.

Our Educational Sales Representatives visit your school every week (within our local service area).
