Summer Instrument Rental

Last Update: Monday, May 16, 2016

Summer Instrument Rental Information


Summer is quickly approaching, and we need to take care of summer rentals at Hillside the week of May 16th.  Please consider your options, so we can take care of all paperwork that week if you are renting from Hillside.


If your child is playing in Orchestra II next year they MUST have an instrument and practice over the summer.  Over 2 months of not playing would set them back far below where they will need to be in the fall.  I also highly recommend summer lessons.  Below is some information for you to consider.


Renting from Hillside- It is $35 for the summer to rent from Hillside, however, all of our instruments are of beginning to low intermediate quality. You also will not have insurance to cover accidents.   If your child is advancing well, please consider renting to own or purchasing an instrument of higher quality.


Rent to Own or Purchase - Violins and violas are especially affordable, cellos being a bit more, with programs through local music stores such as Summerhays Music, Riverton Music, Charles Lui, Bert Murdock, Peter Prier and others.  Many have online rentals, but I do recommend your child going to the store to try instruments before purchasing.  You can also get insurance against breakage, which we do not offer through the school.  This allows students to find an instrument that suits their playing style and preferences, as well.


Summer Practice - All students who will enter Orchestra II must practice in the summer.  I will provide music they can work on, and they can purchase books and music from local music stores or online. Try to get 4 or more days a week in during less busy weeks, and any practice possible during busier weeks.  Lessons are extremely helpful.  There is a list of teachers of my web page, and Summerhays music keeps a large list of local teachers as well.

More information on our web page, as well as helpful videos and resources!


Summer rentals will take place on May 16-18th, so please decide before May 16th, if possible, where you will rent from.  We will return school instruments June 1st if you have not rented them from school.
