Renting an instrument

Renting a high-quality instrument is always better than purchasing a cheaply made instrument. Find out how much it will cost to rent the instrument for the entire year - don't forget Summer Band! Also, some stores will apply your rental fee towards the purchase price of an instrument.

Rentals are available from the following stores:

Washington Music Center rents many instruments for as little as $85 + deposit for the school year!

Buying an instrument

For beginners, renting an instrument is best. After a year or two, talk to your teacher about investing in a quality instrument that will last your child through high school or longer. Be careful: if an instrument is available brand new for a very low price, you might end up paying a lot later for repairs or even a replacement!

Ask your teacher what instrument brands they recommend, or go to:

Repairing an instrument

Repairs are offered at a number of area music stores. Check to see if they do repairs on-site or if they will ship your instrument to another location. Stores that ship usually take much longer to complete simple repairs.
