Here in Florida many schools still thankfully offer music programs. On average most schools will offer children the opportunity to take instrument lessons of their choosing starting from 3rd or 4th grade.
While the school often offers instrument rentals or purchases at a discounted rate off of normal retail, musical instruments are not inexpensive. Quality instruments can vary hugely in range. From student beginner models at a couple of hundred dollars into the thousands for silver and brass professional range items.
While renting may seem ideal at first, if your child takes to the instrument, in the long run it ends up being money out the window as you will end up buying anyway.
Here is the trick. Let other people’s parents buy the instrument for you.
Yep, we said that correctly. Let someone else buy it for you. Much like driving a new car off the lot, both cars and instruments lose value as soon as they are considered “used”. While many kids will try their hand at band in school, not all of them are going to have the talent or the drive to continue to pursue it. What do they do with their already bought, now just sitting on a shelf, flutes, clarinets, trumpets, trombones, saxophones, guitars, and even full drum sets?
You guessed it. They sell them. One of the easiest ways to sell unused instruments is to take them to your local pawn shop. That is one of the many ways that First Pawn of Naples and Lehigh Acres, FL ends up with so many amazing instrumental pieces on the showroom floor.
