Band Rentals & Orchestra Leases

Band Instrument Rental Program

The low cost, easy way to rent your child's first instrument. Not knowing whether a student is going to stick with an instrument can be frustrating. Our band rental program takes the stress out of the decision.

Set your student up with an instrument and rent for as long as you would like. The program is a rent to own, but you aren't tied into any certain length of time. So, rent for a month or rent to own, the setup is the same, and with our early purchase incentives you have all the more reason to try our program.

We use only name brand, band director approved band instruments
