Tailored instrument rentals

Renting an instrument is the best solution for beginners who simply want to try the violin, viola, or cello. This way, you can immediately beginning learning how to play while being guaranteed a quality instrument at minimal cost to you. Additionally, my zero-obligation offer allows you to try instruments without being locked in. What’s more, my lease-purchase offers make it possible to pay off the rental at your own pace.

Renting an instrument is a nice alternative to purchasing, especially if you will need to change instruments. For example, children quickly outgrow instruments and need to update to a larger size as they progress.

That’s why instrument rentals will save you from purchasing a new instrument every time your child hits a growth spurt.

To clarify, the term “outfit” refers to the instrument, bow, case and accessories. All of our rentals are the best outfits we have. This is no easy feat, as each component is carefully selected according to my own rigorous set of criteria.

Furthermore, I handle the set-up of every rental instrument. Each instrument is regularly maintained as well.

As previously stated, my goal is to offer top-quality instruments and assistance even to the most beginner players. Many people think that novice musicians won’t have any issue if they start on low-quality instruments, but I disagree. Easy and comfort of play as well as good tone quality allows novice players to progress more quickly. It also makes the learning process more enjoyable.

More about our rentals

Rent for a year, a month, a week or even a day

Are you looking to try your hand at an instrument for a few lessons, but don’t know if you will continue? Or perhaps you plan to spend a full year studying at a music conservatory? Whatever your plans are, instrument rentals will give you total control on the duration of hire while still meeting your budget.

Even if you’re looking to rent a specific instrument for a special occasion (a concert, an event, an audition or a contest), my workshop can provide you with a rental. Please contact me so that I can provide you with a custom quote.



Rental credits and financing your instrument

The lease-purchase option is a way to go from renter to owner. In other words, this gives renters the option of using their payments as a way to finance their future instrument. This way, you can purchase an instrument while staying within your budget.

  • Renters have the advantage of a 50% discount on the purchase of their rental instrument.

If you would like to rent any of the above instruments, it is possible. Please contact me if you’re interested in renting:

  • Baroques instruments

I will then create a customized quote that includes the desired instrument and time frame of the rental. Additionally, you will find estimated pricing on our website by searching for these specific instruments.
