The Easiest Way To Try Before You Buy A Musical Instrument


Everyone loves learning how to play an instrument, from the very young to the young at heart but old in body. If you are considering learning an instrument or if your child has been asking about it for a while, then the first thing you need to do is decide which avenue you want to go down. Do you want to go with string, brass, percussion or woodwind? There are many different paths you could take, but all of these instruments cost so much to purchase outright. Luckily, instrument rentals are the perfect solution to your indecision. 

Obligation Free

There are hundreds of musical instruments out there, and no one has time to learn them all, let alone buy a new one each time you get bored of the last. When you use instrument rental services, you can choose an instrument and not feel locked in, which makes it much easier to decide to try something else. If you buy a musical instrument but realise you don't like it, you might feel obligated to keep trying because of the money invested. With instrument rental, this weight at the back of your mind is removed and you can feel free to focus on the music.

Wide Range

Often, the more obscure the instrument is, the more expensive it is. That means that it can be very hard for some people to risk spending thousands on a double bass when a traditional bass costs far less. With instrument rental, this 'play-it-safe' reasoning is no longer a factor, and you can try as unique an instrument as you can find. For many people, this can be the avenue into music that they always wanted but felt shut out of. Many instrument rental shops also have far greater stock than traditional music stores, and if they don't have something, they can order it in for you.

Cheaper Price If You Continue With It

If you end up finding the instrument you always wanted, then the need to rent it changes to a need to own it. Luckily, instrument rental places understand this and most offer steep discounts on instruments you are currently renting. The longer you have been renting the instrument, the more off of the outright cost you will get. That means your loyalty to the shop is rewarded and not just discounted. On the other hand, if you don't enjoy the instrument, you can simply return it at the end of the allotted time with no further commitments.

Finding a new sound

I've been a professional piano player for years, but every now and then I feel like I need a new sound. Recently I started to write some new keyboard music and tried out some different styles and personas for a new project. I am not sure what my exact next step is (it always varies when I try to expand musically), but I want to be sure that I stay true to myself and the music that I love no matter what direction I find myself going in. This blog is my place to record my advice and ideas for trying out new things in music. I hope you enjoy it!
