When you think student instrument rentals, you think Rick’s Music for all your instrument rental needs. From a starter violin for your five-year-old to that double French horn you’ve been thinking about taking up, you can count on us; whether you’re a parent, teacher, or adult learner.

Value for Learning

Rick’s chooses only the highest-quality student instruments for our musical instrument rental program, covering Rhode Island & Massachusetts. Our repair technicians, educators, and performers gather together to evaluate new instruments from the manufacturers every year. We choose instruments to rent under our company name based on our evaluation of the quality of build, sound and technical performance, use within the learning environment, parts availability, and longevity. If it does not meet our strict standards, we do not carry it!

Expert Care

Both new and “like new” musical instruments are available with the very affordable Rent-to-Own program. Respected brands such as Amadeus, Armstrong, Bach, Besson, Buffet, Conn, Courtois, Eastman, Gemeinhardt, Jupiter, Ludwig, Mapex, Pearl, Selmer and Yamaha are among our picks for the woodwind, brass, string, and percussion products that we rent and sell. All pre-owned student instrument rentals are examined and placed in proper performance condition by our expert repair shop prior to rental or sale.

Rental instruments start as low as $20.00 per month for many “like new” instruments.
