Top Spots To Rent Musical Instruments In South Florida

“Whether your New Year’s resolution is to learn a new instrument or you have a child in the school band, there are many businesses in the South Florida area that buy and sell new and used musical instruments and supplies. Rental options are available for those who simply are looking for a short-term “ownership” option. Rent-to-Own options are available to those who aren’t sure if they’re ready for the commitment or who can’t afford the commitment at this time. Keep in mind, these rental options aren’t just affordable; they are also very budget-conscious. While you’re “testing the waters,” you might want to check out the following shops. They not only have everything you need to get started and stay interested, they also include repairs and lessons within their service options.

With instructors located in the Miami Shores region of South Florida, you will find a variety of stringed instruments for rent and a passionate music teacher that will travel to your front door, teaching you how to play. Catering to all customers, Miami String specializes in providing music education to children, providing one-on-one in-home lessons. Through affordable sessions and a teacher that will bring supplies with them, instrument rental now comes with delivery service.”
