When your child decides that they want to play an instrument at school, it’s no doubt that you’ll be proud. But once you see the cost of these musical utensils, you may be hesitant to pay full price for an instrument that may only get played a few times. After all, your child has already been through art, karate, swimming and now music.
The Benefits to Renting an Instrument
At Catfish Music, we have a smart solution for parents: rent an instrument. It’s the best of both worlds; kids get the instrument of their choice and parents don’t have to purchase the actual device. It saves money, allows the child to test out the instrument without pressure and gives parents the peace of mind that they can return the instrument if needed.
Typically, kids begin playing instruments in fourth, fifth and sixth grades. If your child starts showing interest in music, it’s important to foster this curiosity and allow them to test the waters without having to make a long-term commitment. Thanks to our full selection of school band and orchestra instruments, it has never been easier to experiment with a variety of musical devices and find the right fit for your child.
No Long-Term Contract
Of course, if your child does fall in love with a particular instrument and wants to continue participating, this is the right time to buy it. Until then, however, renting is an excellent compromise. There are some factors to keep in mind, such as the length of the contract. Many companies will expect parents to sign a long-term contract, and this means that you’ll end up paying more for the instrument over time than if you would have just purchased it upfront.
At Catfish Music, we have no long-term contracts, and rental fees are as little as $17 a month. We have flexible payment options that cater to all budgets, and all of our instruments have the benefit of rent-to-own, which means you can choose to buy the instrument at any time and your previous rental payments will count toward the final price. You also can’t beat our repair and maintenance plans all from our family friendly music company.
