Planning to Buy Your Child a Musical Instrument? Why You Should Rent Instead

If your child wants to learn how to play a musical instrument, but you're not sure about their motivation, make sure you rent before you buy. There are quite a few incentives to renting musical instruments, especially when they're first starting out. Before you buy a musical instrument for your child, read the information provided below. You'll find four great reasons to consider instrumental rental services.  

No Permanent Commitment

If your child is ready to learn how to play a musical instrument, you may think it's best to purchase their own instruments. That's not necessarily the case, especially if this will be your child's first attempt at learning a musical instrument. Your child might not know what type of instrument they want to play. Or, they may start with one instrument, and then change their mind. When you rent their musical instrument, there's no long-term commitment to worry about. Your child can explore their musical tastes until they find the one that they're ready to commit to on a long-term basis. 

No Large Initial Investment

If you want to get your child involved in a music program, the first thing you need to do is get them an instrument. If you plan to buy an instrument for them, you'll be looking at a large initial investment, especially if you plan to pay cash. Unfortunately, some musical instruments can be quite expensive. If you have more than one child to purchase instruments for, your investment will double, or triple. Luckily, you won't have that problem when you choose to rent musical instruments. You'll only be responsible for the rental fees.

No Need for Perfect Credit

If you've decided to buy your child's musical instrument using an instalment loan, you need to think about the credit. When you buy musical instruments using an instalment loan, you'll end up paying more in the long run, especially when you add interest to the final cost. Not only that, but you also need to make sure that your credit score will allow for financing. You can avoid the problems associated with financing your child's musical instrument. Simply rent your child's instrument instead. 

No Repairs to Worry About

If your child is ready to learn how to play a musical instrument, and you plan to buy one for them, it's time to think about the repairs. You might not realise this, but when you buy an instrument, you're responsible for the repairs and maintenance. However, when you rent their musical instrument, repairs and maintenance will be handled by the rental company. 

About Me

New Instruments, New Pedagogical Technique and Other Advances in Music

Humans have been making music for as long as they have existed. In fact, you could easily argue that humans (just as many other animals do) made music before they even evolved into being humans. However, although it is older than ancient, music keeps evolving and changing. Humans are always driven to make new sounds in new ways. Hi, my name is Caitlyn, and I love music. I also love to see what's new and interesting. To help me organise my thoughts, I decided to create a blog. In this space, I am going to post news, facts and ideas relating to a range of musical concepts with a focus on the new and exciting.
