Give your child a great musical experience without emptying your wallet.

3 reasons to rent from Noteworthy Music

  • We start you off right. Take advantage of our support as we meet with you and your child face to face to provide individualized instructions on the handling and care of their instrument. We’ll put everything you need in your hands and answer all of your questions.
  • Quality and value. We offer high-quality instruments (Bach, Selmer, Vito, Knilling, Amati, etc.) in an affordable program. Routine servicing and adjustments to your rented instrument is free. Private instruction is available to help your student excel!
  • A generous purchase option. Most parents rent with the expectation that they will someday own an instrument for their student. Don’t pay full retail price! We have the program that guarantees a discount – a full 20%! And we do not put a cap on the amount of rental credit you can apply to your purchase.
