Blues to Bach Music Center rents and sells school-approved Band and Orchestra instruments to students throughout the Kansas City area. Our primary focus includes students in the school districts of Johnson, Wyandotte and Leavenworth Counties in Kansas.
We offer both New and Pre-Rented (used) instruments. Our pre-rented instruments have been cleaned, inspected, and are in very good condition. We know that the appearance of a child's instrument matters to the student, so it matters to us.
At Blues to Bach Music Center, we rent quality, student-level instruments that are appropriate for most performers through high school. These instruments are made specifically for student-aged players, meaning they are easier to play, lighter and more durable.
Some area music stores will encourage a further investment into a step-up band instrument just months into the student’s playing. We will not do that. As parents of former school-aged children ourselves, we are sensitive to the costs of children’s activities and attempt to provide a good value for your money. If your child progresses to a point where a step-up instrument is advised, we have those instruments available.
Can’t I just buy on-line or at a garage sale? Yes, and at times this can provide a good value. However, used instruments often need repair work that is costly. In addition, there are some lesser known brands that have come onto the market within the past few years with shockingly low sale prices. However, their instrument quality is often poor and may not play consistently, leaving the student frustrated.
Choose from the large selection of latest pre-made blocks - full-screen intro, bootstrap carousel, content slider, responsive image gallery with lightbox, parallax scrolling, video backgrounds, hamburger menu, sticky header and more.
We offer several contract variations including Month-to-Month and School-Year rates for either new or previously rented instruments.
