Not able to purchase a new instrument today? Our layaway program is a terrific option for everyone from families making musical purchases on a tight budget to those who need to keep big box purchases a secret until just the right moment.

If you’re a parent thinking about getting your child enrolled in music lessons, check out our instrument rental program! This is the perfect way to test the musical waters with your child without having to commit to a serious purchase. Every instrument in the program is 100% rent-to-own, so you can be confident knowing your payments are contributing towards the purchase of the instrument should you choose to own it.
