We’ve been blogging about Musical Instrument Rentals all month and covered a lot of ground, so I though we could do a compilation of our posts as Rental Season winds down.

We started out with Choosing Your First Musical InstrumentHow do you know which instrument to choose for your student? Bottom line–which one will they PRACTICE? We gave you some tips about how music teachers guide their students to their first instrument. Remember–at Bertrand’s Music you can exchange your rental instrument for a different one whenever you want!

Then we tackled How do Musical Instrument Rentals Work? and walked you through the process of renting an instrument. It only takes 15 minutes or so and you can walk out of your local Bertrand’s Music store with your instrument in hand–and a new musician, too!

Of course, some customers consider purchasing an instrument rather than renting, so we next discussed 5 Reasons to Rent a Musical Instrument. What were they again?

  1. Choice
  2. Quality
  3. Flexibility
  4. Protection
  5. Pride

We finished up our Musical Instrument Rentals series with Every Musician Needs a Pencil: a discussion of the accessories your new musician needs to be successful. It’s true that every musician needs a pencil, but they need other things, too! Click on the link to find out what your young musician will need to have with them when they go to a lesson or a rehearsal and for practicing at home.
