You are welcome to rent or buy your instrument (although I highly recommend renting until your student has been playing their instrument for at least three months.) If you own or buy an instrument, make sure it is in good working condition. Tague Music does a great job at repairing instruments. I recommend renting an instrument from the Music Yard (based in Rocklin) because they will provide you with a brand new instrument at a really great rental price and deliver it to the school!
