Instrument Rental Information
String Rental Information
This is Molly Lieberman, the strings instructor, please rent an instrument for your child before their first lesson. I do not recommend purchasing an instrument at this point because your children will outgrow them very quickly. Renting also includes perks like insurance policies, local repairs, and trade-ins for when your children do grow. I highly recommend renting an instrument from Korinthian Violins in Bay View - Korinthia Klein makes her own instruments and they are the best to be found in Milwaukee. Instruments are also available for rental at most other area music stores, including Brass Bell Music Store, White House of Music, Cascio Interstate, etc. An employee at any of these stores will measure your children to make sure they have an appropriately-sized instrument, so make sure to bring the kids with you. If your child is between instrument sizes, please ask the worker for one on the smaller side to avoid unnecessary strain. If you have your heart set on purchasing an instrument and are not a string player yourself, please involve me in the process! I would love to help you pick out a high-quality instrument.

Drum Rental Information
For drum set lessons, Mr. Pettigrew recommends purchasing a pair of drumsticks and a practice pad from your local music store for beginners. As students advance, he will recommend pieces to build a drum set. African drums can be rented or purchased at Brass Bell Music Store.
