Music has the special ability to bring joy and peace into homes and social gatherings. Whether we dream of standing with family around a piano singing Christmas carols or having a beautiful melody playing live during an upcoming event, that dream can become reality. Piano rental is not a service I was aware of during my younger years. Now that I know about this terrific option, I am highly pleased with the piano rental choices in Atlanta that are available.
There are a variety of reasons why people choose to rent pianos, rather than buying one. Take for instance a child who becomes interested in learning to play an instrument. The first thing they want is an instrument of their own. Like many musical instruments, pianos can be very costly. Likewise, many children who acquire a new interest, often times lose that interest just as quickly as they developed it. This is where piano rental can prove to be both beneficial and cost effective. Other reasons to consider rentals may include special occasions, a newfound hobby or a temporary housing situation.
Types of Pianos
There are several types of pianos to choose from. The space available and the specific purpose of the piano will help to determine which piano is the right one. Some of the choices are baby grands, spinet and console pianos, concert grands, digital pianos, Hammond B3’s and uprights. For whatever the need may be, there is sure to be a piano which will accommodate.
Rent to Rent
If I was vacationing or learning to play piano, rent to rent would be the ideal choice. This option is done on a month to month rental basis, with no restrictions on when the piano must be returned. Therefore, I could keep the piano for one year or 2 days, depending on the situation. Furthermore, while renting the piano I would also be earning credit for up to one year, to go towards the purchase of a piano of my own. So, if I acquire a sincere passion while renting, I’ll have already paid a down payment on the piano of my choice. Plus, if the piano needs tuning or repair during the rental period, the piano company will fix it.
Rent to Own
Pianos can be rather expensive, so to get the benefits of having a piano without breaking the bank, there are rent to own services available as well. To match my decor and to fit my personal preferences, I can choose the size, style and finish of the piano to suit my home. I can get the piano of my choice and have it delivered straight to me. While making easy monthly payments, as I work up to full ownership, I can be learning piano and gaining talent. With a desire to learn and consistent practice, I can be ready to play before a crowd with my very own piano in no time.
Best of all, whether I choose to do rent to rent or rent to own, the costs associated with it are very reasonable. Up front, the costs include a delivery fee, maintenance fee and the first month’s payment. Additionally, there are pianos to fit every budget. The spinet piano starts at $25 a month and for a console piano the monthly cost begins at $49. Also, for quiet households where noise must be kept to a minimum, there are digital pianos available. They require no tuning and are set up and ready to go. With digital pianos, playing can begin right away for as little as $30 per month.
It is nice to know that no matter what my situation or need may be, there is an accommodating piano rental option available. Have you ever rented a piano before and if so, what benefits have you experienced?
