Orchestra Rent To Own

  • You may rent your instrument for as little as 1 month. Continuous rent goes toward ownership, with 0% interest.

  • Orchestra instruments are offered in fractional sizes. This allows children to begin at earlier ages. Most 4th graders are going to fall in the 1/2 to 3/4 range to begin.

  • If your child continues to play, they will eventually need a full size instrument. At Uptempo, 100% of the rent you’ve paid will be credited toward the purchase of a full size instrument.

  • Once your child outgrows their instrument, you simply come in and we will exchange it for a bigger one. All your previous rent payments will transfer over to your new instrument.

  • You are never under obligation to continue this program or pay off your instrument. Simply return it.

  • Cancel: You may cancel at any time, with no obligation to pay off. The rental agreement is cancelled when the instrument is returned to Uptempo Music or picked up by an Uptempo representative.
