K-12 students and parents who rent or purchase equipment from Practicing Musician help fund K-12 music programs across the United States. In fact, Practicing Musician donates 100% of all net profit from all K-12 rentals and equipment sales. By crowdsourcing funding in this way, Practicing Musician creates an increasingly significant and sustainable funding stream - funding that K-12 music programs have desperately needed for so long.

Practicing Musician is pleased to offer our musical instrument rental program EASYRENT powered by NEMC. Through this program, we are able to offer access to the largest inventory of teacher-approved quality musical instruments in new or like-new condition such as trumpets, clarinets, trombones, flutes, saxophones, violins, violas, cellos, percussion and many more.

Practicing Musician has partnered with Give A Note Foundation to provide funding generated by instrument rentals and equipment sales to schools in need. Whether supporting new classes, purchasing instruments, or providing risers for school concerts, every rental or equipment sale helps provide students with the life-changing benefits of music study.

Will my instrument be clean and sanitized?

In both the early 1990’s and 2000’s, NEMC consulted with the Epidemiology branch of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the development of a proprietary cleaning and sanitation process specific to each type of musical instrument we rented. COVID-19 has inspired new advances. In March of this year we modified this process to accommodate new government agency guidelines for social distancing and surface sanitization to protect our workers, and added “no-touch” bagging of the instrument and case prior to shipment, ensuring that customers receive a sanitized instrument once the outer packaging is removed.

What if my instrument gets damaged?

In the unlikely event your instrument needs repair or adjustment, just request a free prepaid return label and bring your instrument in its original container to any UPS drop-off location. We’ll take care of the rest and in just a few days your instrument will back in your hands ready to play (next day expedited repair service available in select areas).
