Musical Instrument Rentals

Musical Instrument Rentals With Maintenance & Repair Included

musical instrument rentals for students and studio

When a child is just starting a music program, it makes sense to rent.

It limits the initial investment and allows students and parents flexibility. The Music Room supports students in the Northwest suburbs through band and orchestra instrument rentals. Our rent-to-buy program is different from some rental programs in that we allow parents to build equity from the first payment and return the instrument at any time without further obligation.

Our musical instrument rentals provide the best value to students and parents in the long term. Maintenance and repair costs are completely covered.

The Music Room applies 100% of all rental payments toward the purchase of a student instrument (excluding the maintenance and repair fee), so you build equity faster.

Instruments Available for Rent:

  • Saxophone
  • Baritone horn (3/4 – full size)
  • Cello (1/2 – 4/4)
  • Clarinet
  • Flute
  • French horn
  • Oboe
  • Percussion kit
  • Trombone
  • Trumpet
  • Viola (12″ – 15.5″)
  • Violin (1/8 – 4/4)

Need a size upgrade on a violin, viola or cello? No problem, it’s included. All instruments are guaranteed to meet or exceed your school music department’s requirements.

The Music Room also offers free care and maintenance consultations. We’ll teach your child the proper way to care for his or her new instrument, so they can avoid common problems. Schedule an appointment today.

  • Pickup & Payment Info

    Payment Information
    Reservations are not complete until payment has been received. We will contact you to set up a payment method. Thereafter, rental payments will be settled automatically via credit card or bank draft. We will ask you to supply your chosen method of payment at the time the contract is signed. Monthly payments are due every 30 days, beginning with the month following your requested pickup date above.

    Every Payment Builds Equity Our program is an equity building program. That means that each rental payment (excluding the maintenance and repair fee) goes toward the purchase of your instrument. For stringed instruments, your accumulated equity is applied through each size increase toward the purchase of a full size student instrument. There is no obligation to buy, however, and the instrument may be returned at any time.

    When Will My Instrument Be Ready?
    We are now taking reservations for Summer 2021 as well as the Fall 2021 school year. Please indicate your preferred pickup date and we will do our best to accommodate you. Please note that we are closed on Sundays. If you are looking to rent an instrument right away, we will do our best to have your instrument ready in two business days, by 6pm.
