Getting Started with Instrument Rentals

When we first started our instrument rental program, we designed it to be different. After a few years of most programs, other music stores allow you to buy the instrument you’ve been leasing. The one that has been banged up on the bus. That starter-instrument designed for the starter musician. The instrument you love…but maybe not the one you desire. So we did it differently; hence the term Lease to Learn. Get started on a quality student-level instrument now, and when the time is right, purchase a new musical instrument for your aspiring musician.

We cater to all music levels and rental needs so you can continue making “Music for Life!”
