Renting vs. Purchasing

Each store have their own prices. The bigger the instrument, the more expensive it will be to rent. (For example: If your child is debating to play the cello versus the violin, the cello will be more expensive to rent, since it is bigger.) We recommend contacting one of the stores on our suggested list. Make sure to ask the music store representative about a Maintenance Plan and the Rent-To-Purchase plan.

We emphasize not to purchase an instrument unless the student is sized for a “full size”. At the elementary level, most of the students are not fully grown yet. Throughout their growth, they will be moving up in size for their specific instrument.
