Instrument Rental Process
**School Instruments are Limited!! They are given out, first come, first served at the Instrumental Music Open House. If you cannot attend the open house, email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) immediately in order to reserve an instrument. Once I run out of instruments, students are required to rent.
I highly recommend you RENT, not buy, from a music shop. I do not recommend ebay or Amazon. Instruments from these vendors are usually very poor quality, unstable, unpredictable, and result in an unsatisfactory playing experience for the student.
Some of the perks for renting an instrument include:
- insurance coverage for damage
- free size exchanges as your child grows
- opportunities for upgrades
