If you are looking for a guitar shop or a specialty folk instrument retailer, please support your locally-owned guitar shop.
There are a number of exceptional private teachers in the area and we are happy to provide recommendations, just give us a call.
If you are renting your instrument, your repairs are included for free! You may send in your student’s instrument through your school for our representative to pick up on their weekly visit, or you can bring it into a store.
As school music specialists, we are unable to provide repair work for guitars or folk instruments, such as autoharps.
Due to the volume of requests received, we have focused our support to events and programs that directly relate to music education in our Michigan schools. Requests must be submitted through the online form.
Instrument Rental Questions:
We’ve worked with teachers and families for decades and have developed a rent-to-own program that offers flexible options for all these possible scenarios.
With your rental package, every dollar of your payments goes towards ownership with no commitments or obligations– you may return the instrument at any point if your student is done playing. If your student needs to switch their instrument, size-up their instrument, or upgrade their instrument, 100% of your accumulated rental credit transfers over to their new instrument. Your instrument will always be in optimal playing condition since all repairs and maintenance are covered with your rental.
Your rental package will also include all teacher-required accessories, such as special mouthpieces, tuners, etc., plus a free music stand and the book for class.
Most importantly, repair and maintenance is fully covered while you’re renting, so your student will be able to keep making music in the classroom, no matter what! In case of theft, accident, or vandalism, a replacement instrument is only a call away.
If they do not plan to continue with school music, simply return their instrument and we will close your account.
As your student advances and music becomes an important part of their life, it might be time for them to upgrade. A Step-Up instrument offers developing students the tools they need to further improve their tone, playing ability, and range, by providing additional features (like added keys) as well as high-end metal and wood components and construction.
With Meyer’s rental program, 100% of your accumulated rental credit transfers to a Step-Up instrument and you can continue with monthly payments on this new instrument or purchase outright.
If you’re ready to own your instrument outright, you may pay off your instrument anytime and take an additional discount off your remaining balance.
When you pay off your instrument and it becomes yours, you’ll have the option to purchase a repair plan to continue to protect your investment.
