We have worked closely with your student's Music Director(s) to develop our "Instrument Rental Program" to provide the exact instrument, books, maintenance & care supplies, accessories and repair coverage to give your student the best chance to succeed in music.

Rent to Own + No Interest

Complete the payments and the instrument is yours to keep. We finance the instrument and don't charge you interest.

Repair + Replacement*

We'll take care of routine repairs, accidental damages, and provide coverage in case of loss due to fire or theft.
*Additional fee(s) paid each month

Purchase Outright & Save

At any point during your rental you can choose to pay off your instrument in full, saving 30% off the existing balance.

Return Anytime

No long-term commitment. Simply return the instrument back to any Tarpley Music location to end your rental contract.


For those joining Orchestra

With Orchestra instruments it is very important to select the correct  instrument size so that playing is as easy and comfortable as possible. We've built a guide in the tab below to show you how to properly size your student for the Orchestra Instrument that they've been assigned, whether that is Violin, Viola, or Cello.This will be a necessary step for choosing the correct size instrument in the next section.

You're going to need a tape measure or a yardstick to accurately size your student. Lift their left arm and extend it fully to the side, palm facing upward, fingers flat and straight out. Place the measurement tool under the chin, touching the neck and then determine the measurement from the neck to the center of the palm. Don't allow for any slack. Once you have the size in inches, use the charts below to determine the size instrument your student needs.

Note: For players in-between sizes, always select the smaller size.
