Instrument rentals are provided to our students through David French Music Company. The Belmont Public Schools has carefully selected DFM as our vendor for instrument rentals based upon the quality of instruments they provide, their outstanding level of service and their affordable monthly rental rates. The average rental cost depends on the instrument, but is typically between $20-40 per month.
Instrument Rental Day is held each September at Belmont High School. Families can enroll in a rental program with our vendor and take their instrument home that very day. String students will be accurately fitted to an instrument that is the correct size for them. You can also purchase any books or other supplies you may need at Instrument Rental Day.
If you are unable to attend Instrument Rental Day, you can contact David French Music to begin your rental program. This should be done prior to Instrument Rental Day if at all possible. Keep in mind that students must have an instrument by the third week of lessons in order to participate in the Instrumental Music Program.
