Renting an instrument is the most cost effective option for new players.
Renting an instrument allows students to have the flexibility of changing instruments easily and grow into the right size of a string instrument. The Southbury Music Studio offers excellent quality name brand instruments to rent at an affordable price.
Where do your rentals come from?
Our Rental Instruments are locally owned from The Creative Music Center in Monroe, CT.
What is the advantage of renting an instrument?
If you’re not sure whether or not your child is going to commit to an instrument, renting is a very cost effective option. Rental payments range from $27 to $79 per month, depending on the type of instrument your child chooses. The monthly rental payment is a fraction of the cost of buying a quality musical instrument outright. Plus, if your child wants to switch to another instrument, and change sizes, you can easily exchange a rental instrument (and carry over your accumulated equity*), as opposed to having to purchase (or rent) a different instrument.
What is your rent-to-own program and how does it work?
Our exclusive rent-to-own program means 100% of your base rental payments (excluding tax and maintenance) are applied towards the purchase of your instrument or any band or orchestra instrument of equal or greater value than the instrument you are renting.
Are there any cost effective options if I don't want the month to month rental?
Yes, we do offer a school year special for FIRST time renters only. You pay up front one price for the instrument and get it September through June 15th. The instrument can not be returned early for money back and the instrument can not be exchanged.
