Rental Program Overview 
Renting a quality, brand-name instrument is an inexpensive and therefore practical way to “try before you buy.” With our convenient and flexible rental program, you can get your child started in a school music program without investing in an instrument before you know for sure your child is committed. Our rent-to-own program is designed to help students have success in music. We feature top quality student instruments at affordable prices. The best part? Unlike other rental companies, your payments – excluding tax and maintenance – go toward the purchase of the instrument you are renting or a better quality instrument.
As new music students, your child is going to learn to read music notes and become familiar with the mechanics of their instrument (fingerings and proper positioning) and learn how to produce a good quality sound. The instrument your child takes to school should enhance – not inhibit – the process. Creative Music Center rental instruments are chosen for their reliability, durability and playability.
