Frequently Asked Questions

General Music Education

Can a music education really make my child smarter?

Research has now proven that a music education is a vital part of a complete education. Studies show that music enhances higher brain function, that it improves reading and math performance and raises SAT and also IQ scores. In addition, music provides important experiences such as physical coordination, concentration and quick thinking. Discipline problems and substance abuse have also found to be lower in music students. Socially, music helps children develop teamwork skills and prepares them for working with others in the future. Click here to learn more about the benefits of playing music.

How can I help my child succeed in music?

First, provide a quality instrument by a major instrument maker and make sure that the instrument is always in good working order. You can help by scheduling regular daily practice times and by providing a quiet place where your child can practice. Be nearby during practice times as often as possible and praise your child's efforts and achievements. Be supportive of your child's interest in music and encourage your child to practice at home and to perform as often as possible. Plus, expose your child to a variety of musical experiences by listening to music and by participating in music-related events such as concerts, theatre and dance.

Is it better to rent or to buy an instrument?

Renting is an affordable way to try an instrument without a purchase investment, and with no obligation to buy. With our plan, 100% of rental payments apply towards purchase of an instrument, and you can return anytime. Most importantly, you're assured of getting a quality educator-approved instrument, which allows the student the greatest chance of success. Borrowed instruments from family or friends may need expensive repairs to make them playable. Please visit our "Rentals" link at the top of the home page for more information.

Should my child take private lessons?

Most educators recommend private lessons on an instrument in addition to in-school band or orchestra classes. Private lessons allow the individual attention a child needs to progress more rapidly on their instrument, and to perform to the best of their abilities. Music & Arts offers private lessons at most store locations and our staff can help you choose a professional instructor. Contact the location nearest you for lesson rates.

How to order an Instrument Rental

How do I complete a rental agreement?

Rent Online in 6 Easy Steps!

After clicking on "Rentals" from the home page:

  • Enter your zip code
  • Select Your School (if applicable)
  • Select Your Instrument
  • Choose Your Delivery Method
  • Select your method book and accessories
  • Checkout

Why do you need my child’s school information?

Your child’s teacher may prefer certain instrument brands and accessories and there is most often a required method book. We ask for your child’s school to ensure you receive the correct products.

What if I can’t locate my school in the school finder?

Please be sure you are searching for your school using its "full official" name, not by abbreviations that may be better known in the community. For example, a school may be known as Wright Middle, but its "full official" name may be Frank Lloyd Wright Middle School. Frank Lloyd Wright Middle School should be used to search. If you are still having trouble finding your school, please contact us at 888.731.5396, or send us an email. [can we make this a link that redirects the customer to the same place as the "Can’t Find Your School? Send us an email" link in the popup]

Your instrument type may not be available for rental. Please contact us at 888.731.5396 should you have any questions.

About the Instrument Rental Plan

Delivery to School: Your instrument will be delivered to your child’s school at the time and day requested by the music teacher.

Pickup in Store: The store will contact you when your instrument is ready for pickup (usually less than 48 hours)

Do you offer Express Shipping for Instrument Rentals?

Yes, we do! We offer UPS Ground, Two Day or One Day shipping options at Checkout.

How long is the Initial Rental Period?

The "Initial Rental Period" may vary by region, and can be found on the Instrument Selection/Pricing page. This is the minimum rental agreement length. You may return your instrument any time after the Initial Rental Period.

Does my rent go towards purchasing an instrument?

Yes. While you are renting, you earn "credit" toward the purchase of a student instrument. When you are ready to purchase, please contact a Rental Associate at 888.731.5396 for specific details.

Do you offer a maintenance plan?

Yes. Most people include Liability Damage Waiver (LDW) with their rental. LDW covers maintenance, repairs, and loss due to theft or fire while you are renting the instrument. It can be cancelled at any time, but only added at the time of rental. It is highly recommended!

Why do I need a credit card to rent?

A credit card or debit card is required should you order online. The card you use for the initial payment will be automatically set up on our Easy Pay program for payment of the monthly re-rental of the instrument. Remember, you can return at any time after the initial rental period ends.

Do I have to pay return shipping?

No. Should you wish to return your rental instrument, please contact us at 888.731.5396 for a Return Authorization and instructions.

About the Rental Instruments

Is my rental instrument going to be new?

Most of our rental instruments are like new. We strongly recommend renting a previously rented instrument, as they are fully shop adjusted to playing condition. This is also a great way for your child to get used to handling the instrument before they get a brand new one. Your rental payments do apply toward the purchase of a new instrument within the first year, and any instrument of equal or greater value thereafter. When you are sure your child will continue with the instrument and you are ready to purchase, please contact us at 888.731.5396 for further details.

What brand will my rental instrument be?

We offer all educator approved, major brand instruments such as Yamaha, Selmer, and Eastman for rental. You can be assured that when you rent from us, you will receive a quality instrument that meets the requirements of your school’s music program.

What comes with the instrument rental?

All instruments include a protective case. In addition, other maintenance items are included free of charge. You can view a list of these items on the Instrument Selection/Pricing page (after clicking "Rentals" from the home page and entering your zip code and school information) within the description of each page.

How do I know what accessories and book(s) my child will need?

The best place to start is with your music teacher. They most likely have specific recommendations regarding what items are needed for your class. Many times we know what additional supplies your music teacher recommends, and if so, these items will be conveniently added to your shopping cart.

What is in a "starter kit"?

The starter kit contains items that you need to get started with the instrument, such as a cleaning kit, music stand, and a name tag. The cleaning kit is like the "toothbrush" for your instrument while a music stand is critical to successful practice at home. You will save money by buying them together as a kit.

Ongoing Support for Instrument Rentals

I did not get a warranty card with my instrument. Would you please send me one?

Discrepancies can delay fulfillment of your order.

If the address you want your order shipped to is the same as your Billing Address, then click the "Check here if Shipping Address is the same" checkbox in the Billing Address section, which will automatically populate the Shipping Address fields with those you entered in the Billing address. If your Shipping Address is different, then simply fill out the proper address without checking the "Check here if Shipping Address is the same" checkbox.

Is there any way I can combine the order that I just placed with one that I placed earlier?

Unfortunately, no. Orders are processed as they are received and it is not possible to combine them. You may be able to cancel both orders and place a new one. Please contact Customer Service at 888.731.5396 to see if this can be done. Be aware that this may delay the processing of your orders.

What do I do if I can't remember my password?
