Saxophone Rental

Learning the saxophone can be a great starting point in a child’s music education. Young saxophonists can play in large ensembles including concert, jazz and marching bands. The saxophone family includes four basic types: the Bb (B flat) soprano, Eb alto, Bb tenor and Eb baritone. The most popular and best beginning instrument is the Alto saxophone. Despite being made from brass, the saxophone is categorized as a woodwind instrument, as the sound is produced by an oscillating reed. The saxophone is considered a key instrument in nearly all genres of music, but especially jazz.

Clarinet Rental

The size and weight of a clarinet make it well-suited for children with small hands. The clarinet is often the instrument to play the melody in band, so children get a lot of pleasure by playing songs they know. There are opportunities to perform in band, orchestra, and jazz bands. This versatile instrument is used in many styles of music including jazz, classical and pop.

Flute Rental

Playing the flute is a great way to learn music. Performance opportunities are available in school band programs, symphony orchestras, jazz ensembles, and as a solo instrument. It is important for young players to be large enough to reach the keys without straining the neck or hands. A flute consists of many moving parts, and occasionally needs minor repairs and adjustments, especially with young players who carry the instrument to and from school. As a local source, The Music Room staff is readily available to quickly tend to any repairs. Maintenance and repair are included in the monthly rental cost.

Oboe Rental

At the beginning of their music education children should start with a student oboe. These instruments are designed to be more durable and are usually made out of grenadilla wood or plastic. Plastic is an ideal material for younger students, while grenadilla is great for a beginning player who started on another instrument, such as a clarinet. Student oboes also have fewer keys than intermediate or professional instruments. The oboe is suited for both solo and ensemble performances. Playing the oboe well requires considerable training and skill.
