Having the right instrument for each phase of your musical journey–whether you’re just starting out or looking to upgrade–makes playing more enjoyable and learning & practicing more effective.
All of our instruments are tested and professionally hand-sorted into levels based on quality of materials, craftsmanship, and tone/acoustics.
Instruments purchased from mass-produced online retailers, while initially affordable, are often less comfortable to play and require costly repairs over time. Our quality levels refer not to the skill of the player, but rather the quality of the instrument itself–from its materials, to its craftsmanship, to its tone and resonance. Learning on an instrument of superior quality at any skill level helps advance and refine your technique and artistry.
Our rental levels are intended to maximize you or your student’s musical success while simultaneously remaining accessible and affordable. When possible, we recommend visiting one of our stores to try out a range of instruments and find the best fit for you and your budget.
