We will match all our competitor's prices. This program provides you with a quality instrument while you earn credit towards your own instrument. The instruments are set-up and maintained to the same high standard, with the same professional quality strings, as the instruments we have for sale. All instruments have been reviewed in all their parts for quality and ease of playing by the Gradoux-Matt Rare Violins workshop. We use D'ADDARIO and DOMINANT strings for all rentals. Teaching experts helped us develop this program, to enhance the educational experience of:

* Teachers who want to concentrate on the student and music, not problems with the instrument, during a lesson. * Students who learn better with a well set-up, rich toned instrument, especially at the beginning of their musical education. * Parents who appreciate hassle-free instruments that satisfy the most particular teacher without return trips to the dealer for corrections of problems.

To rent an instrument, you need to have a valid major credit card and a government issued ID.
