After you receive your instrument, just make low monthly payments and enjoy the music! You can switch instruments or return at any time if it doesn’t work out. Orchestra students get free size-ups as they grow! And when your advancing student is ready to upgrade, you get a credit* to use toward the purchase of an intermediate or professional-level instrument.

*Your account’s Earned Equity Credit is calculated as follows: BAND instruments – equal to first 12 months of payments; ORCHESTRA instruments – 100% of your payments made to date (up to the full cost of your instrument upgrade).
