Your rental can be returned anytime without penalty and the unused portion of the rental will be refunded based on the monthly rental rates shown in this brochure.


100% of Rent Applies To Purchase

100% of Your Rental Payment applies to the purchase of the instrument you are renting. A 20% Early Bonus Discount of your outstanding balance is available if you purchase the instrument within 24 months and are renting on the Monthly Rent-To-Own Program (Bonus Discount is not applicable for School Year Rent-to-Own Program).


Monthly Rentals / Exchanges

Rent is payable 2 months in advance, then monthly pre-authorized payments either by cheque or credit card is collected. Your rental instrument may be exchanged for another instrument of equal or greater value within 12 months of your rental (monthly or yearly program) without loss of your Rent-To-Own credit. If after 12 months an exchange happens, Rent-To-Own credit is lost and accumulation starts over. In regards to Orchestral Strings only, after 12 months for each exchange, 60% rental credit may transfer from a smaller size instrument to a larger size instrument {up to 4/4). This is to allow for the frequency of a student's physical growth during the rental period where exchanges would happen frequently.
