Band and Orchestra Instrument Rentals


Most students begin their musical journey with a rented instrument. Why rent an instrument when you can buy one or get a hand-me-down from a relative? One of the many reasons that renting is a good option is it allows a student to start on a high-quality musical instrument that’s both affordable and durable. A rental program also includes the option to return the instrument, should your student decide they no longer want to participate in music.  Amro has proudly been a band instrument rental institution for many years, helping students and professionals find the instruments they need in the greater Memphis area.
