Band & Orchestra Rentals

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 rent, but you aren't tied into any certain length of time. So, rent for a month or a school year, the setup is the same. Use 100% of the first school year rental credit (less monthly maintenance fees) toward the purchase of an instrument of your own. With our early purchase incentives you have all the more reason to try our program.
