Orchestra Instrument Rentals from The Music Shoppe


We are so excited to be part of your student's musical journey!

Since 1961, our family-owned business has supported school music programs by providing the best possible instruments and services for beginning & advancing players. Why do we care so much? Everyone at The Music Shoppe- as well as experts across many different fields- believes that music is fundamental to a great education. No other subject can inspire creativityteamwork, or social growth like music. But there's also a much simpler answer: Music is fun!

Our advice: jump in with both feet. Learning to play music is a life-changing experience, and we can't wait for you to find out what it's all about! Years from now looking back, this will be a milestone.

Commitment-Free Renting

Rentals begin with a simple, one-month down payment. After your first month, payments continue on a month-to-month basis while you have the instrument.

Orchestra instrument rentals may go for as short or as long as you like. When you wish to cancel your rental agreement, simply return your instrument and you'll have no further obligation.

Exchanging Sizes

Your student will grow as they play in orchestra, so their instrument should, too! Our orchestral Rent-to-Rent program fits your student with a fractional-sized instrument that you can exchange as your student grows. There's never a fee for exchanging, and your monthly payment will stay the same.

Purchase Options Available 

With the Orchestra rental program, your account builds equity to put towards an intermediate- or professional-level, full-size instrument purchase. Up to 36 months of rental (less M&R charges) may be applied. If you aren't ready to upgrade at that time, you can continue to rent for as long as you'd like.
