Rent-to-Own with Golden Music has these time saving features:
1. The best quality instrument - we take time to find the best instruments to offer. This is our only desire, not the strongest bottom line and sliding in a lower quality instrument. For band instruments, we only carry Yamaha and Buffet. For strings, we hand select our workshops and it always ends up being family teams that are trained in the art of building violins, violas, cellos and basses.
These are Great Quotes! They are all from 7th and 8th graders at Madison Middle School and other nearby schools in Appleton, Wisconsin. The kids say things so clearly - seem better than the quotes from famous people.
“Music lifts up your soul and releases it.” – K. D.
“Music is what moves everyone, and without it, life would be pointless.” – D. D.
“Music is important because it can describe people, places, movies, or animals that words can’t. Without music, the world would have a hard time understanding other things.” – B. P.
“Music is important because it helps you express yourself in ways that you can’t with normal talking.”– S. L.
“Music is important to me because it gives me something to look forward to everyday.” – K. K.
Pick an instrument your child loves!
One of the most important things to consider for your child, is simply, “What do they want to play?” Being personally invested in their music instrument choice is crucial to any young learner wanting to stick with it. We see many children show an early affinity to specific instruments, but after exposure to the other instruments in the group, often develop a passion for a different instrument. Having a passion and love for an instrument makes the process of learning so full of ease and enjoyment because the practicing factor is just plain fun. We encourage students to keep trying instruments until they find the one they love the most! In our rent-to-own program, all of your rental credit moves to the other instruments.*
That being said, there are some recommended minimum starting ages:
Should I rent or buy?
Renting an instrument is flexible. Our program has repair and maintenance coverage to keep the instrument in perfect playing condition. We offer the ability to exchange the instrument at no cost, as well as special discounts on purchasing if you have decided you have the right instrument. Also, you have the option to return it if the student should ever decide they want to follow another passion. We have loaner instruments available to students with the maintenance agreement if the instrument needs repairs or maintenance. You can apply all your equity to purchase, allowing you to eventually own an instrument if you wish. Know that our rental fleet is maintained to the highest standards by our in house technician.
