Renting a Cello

Cello students in orchestra class

Most cellist begin with a rented cello. 

Renting has several advantages over buying:  

  • Students can try the cello to be sure it's what they want to play.
  • Cello players play progressively larger instruments as they grow and renting allows them to move up when they're ready.
  • The rental cello takes the initial wear-and-tear of learning to play.
  • The maintenance and replacement plan keeps the cello playing well, repairs it if it's damaged, and replaces it if it's lost or stolen.
  • Renting allows time to see how serious the student will be and to determine what kind of instrument is right for the longer term.
  • A portion of rent can be applied to the purchase of a cello.

Renting a cello is simple and inexpensive.  You choose the cello you want; we can help.  Rent is as little as $39 per month.

You may continue renting for as long as you like or return it to Amro any time after the first 2 months.
