Name-brand instruments at better prices than most music stores. PLUS, you are helping provide music essentials for those less fortunate.

There are many choices where you can rent a beginner band instrument for your child. Why not choose a charitable non-profit where your rentals help ensure other kids with less resources can also start their own musical journies? You really can “Play it Forward” by becoming a rental partner with The Gift of Music!


The Partner Rental program is a no-contract, no credit-check rent-to-own program.  Make easy automatic monthly rental payments and you own the instrument in as little as 36 months. You can cancel any time by simply returning the instrument. Top quality instruments that include our repair and maintenance program at no additional cost


Anyone!  You are supporting a non-profit mission to keep music programs in our schools, and helping provide benefits and resources for children in need around our area while renting the same quality instruments that you would find at commercial music stores.  We serve five states in the Southeastern US. 


Everything can be done online.  There are no paper forms or payment coupons to manage.  Simply choose your instrument, complete the basic questions, and make your initial monthly payment online. We will deliver the instrument right to your school. 

The Partner Rental Program is now closed for 2022-2023 School Year.

We have placed all of our instruments for this school year. 

The program will return in the summer of 2023 with a full supply of instruments
