In order to be a part of the beginning of your budding musician’s life, we strive to offer only teacher approved brands and offer three great ways in which to obtain your new or refurbished instrument. Our rental and purchase plans offer the best value in the state. Some of our unique features include: 

Pay Cash, Get a Discount

  • Buy your instrument for a 40% -  50% discount off the list price (MSRP), and it’s yours to keep.
  • The least expensive way to get your student a high-quality beginning instrument!
  • Available for band and full-sized string instruments.
  • Cash, check, credit or debit cards accepted.
  • MRC and IRC available on an annual basis. 
  • YES! We will buy the instrument back if your child stops playing - ask your M.I. educational specialist for details.

Monthly Rent to Own

  •  Available for band and full-sized string instruments.
  • All monthly rental payments apply toward purchase. 

  • Buy out your contract, any time after the first scheduled payment, or only 55% of the Balance. 

  • There’s no risk! Return the instrument at any time, with no termination fees or additional charges.

Our rent to own plan allows 100% of the monthly rental to be applied towards purchase. No added taxes or fees, no mandatory coverage charges. 

PASS Plan (Pay for A School Year & Save) 

  • Pay for your first 9 months in advance and get a PASS for the summer - that’s 3 months with no payments due! with no payments due! 

  • Get a FREE black folding music stand (list price $24.95) with your initial PASS payment.

  • There’s no risk! Return the instrument any time, with no termination fees, and get a refund of all unused monthly rent.

If you pay for 9 months’ rental or lease up front, you get the summer free! That means three months without a payment. Not only does this save parents money, but it also encourages retention throughout the school year, and then encourages students to keep playing all summer long. Parents, students, and school music programs all benefit.

Partial-Sized String Leases (1/4, 1/2, & 3/4 string instruments)

Families who lease a partial-sized string instrument from us will get 100% credit towards their full-sized instrument. That means that 100% of their lease fees will apply towards rental or purchase of their full-sized instrument when the time comes.

Encore Package (accessory combo package)

Our Encore Package offers parents a discount on the purchase of textbook (method book), folding stand (choice of colors), and care kit. We help ensure that your future students have all the supplies they need to succeed in your class. And we keep track of your personal preferences and requests, so your students always come to class with the correct materials.

Step Up and Professional Instrument Financing

We offer ten months same as cash financing on most step-up and professional instruments. All financing is done in-house, not through an outside finance company.

Maintenance (MRC) and Replacement (IRC) Coverage Options

Like many other companies, our MRC (Maintenance & Repair Coverage) provides for routine maintenance and accidental damage that affects the playing condition of the instrument. But we offer the added feature of free string replacement when strings break. Our IRC (Instrument Replacement Coverage) provides full replacement of the instrument in case of fire, theft or irreparable damage – much more than the “waiver of claim” you’ve seen offered elsewhere.

Mouthpiece Testing and Instrument Fitting 

We offer free mouthpiece testing and instrument fitting for any beginning band or string student. This helps each student find the instrument(s) that offer them the best chance of success, and enables him or her to enter class with excitement and confidence from Day One. This “Personal Approach Recruiting” option helps the band or string teacher achieve better retention and more balanced instrumentation, as students are gently guided towards instruments that are the best match for them physically and musically.
