The Gift of Music Access To Instruments Program

As a non-profit organization, we are mission-focused on serving music students, teachers, and programs – not shareholders or “the bottom line.” We believe every child should have access to a quality musical instrument at a price that fits into the parent’s budget. We also believe the process should be simple and fair:  A simple agreement, flexible & easy payment options, no credit checks, and a quick, paperless process (whenever possible.)

  • STUDENTS: get the quality instrument they need to participate in band or orchestra.
  • PARENTS: can afford the cost of the instrument and its care.
  • DIRECTORS: increase participation in their programs with students on quality instruments.

Our Instrument Rental Programs

Our Access To Instruments Program was designed with students, parents, and directors in mind. We offer brand-name, “Director Approved” instruments as well as fully-reconditioned instruments acquired through our donation programs. We are the only source in our area for specialized reduced-price and free* instrument rentals for those with qualifying financial circumstances. It is our mission to help all kids have Access to Instruments! See which program is best for your situation.

Partner Program: Become an instrument program partner with us and rent a new or nearly new student level instrument. This is a no-contract, no-credit-check, rent-to-own program. Cancel at any time by simply returning the instrument. Best of all, you are helping to give the Gift of Music to others, as proceeds from Partner rentals help support our other benefit-based rental programs.  (Partner Rentals available in GA, TN, AL, SC, and NC.)

Reduced Program*: The same easy rent-to-own rental program available at greatly-reduced monthly prices available for those who meet eligibility requirements. These are high-quality reconditioned student-level instruments, with affordable monthly rental fees.  (Reduced Rentals available within 100 mile radius of Atlanta, GA.)

Gift of Music Program**: For those who qualify, we offer “gifted” instrument rentals at no monthly cost. (A $25 annual application fee is required.) These instruments are appropriate for beginner students and come from our inventory of donated and refubished instruments.  (Gift of Music rentals available within 100 mile radius of Atlanta, GA.)

* Must meet eligibility requirements.   |  ** Income restrictions apply and must have director approval. See application for details
