Getting Started

So your student has decided to join the school band and wants to play the flute! We here at Bronstein Music can help!

Instrument Purchases

The simplest way to secure an instrument for your student is to purchase one. While it may be tempting to look online and purchase a very inexpensive instrument, we highly discourage this. Many of these low-cost instruments can have many problems and it might cause frustration for your student, leading them to abandon their musical journey. Here at Bronstein Music, we only select tried and tested brands that our staff, BMS teachers, and local school teachers have approved.

The brands we carry for flute rentals and purchases are DiZhao, Jupiter, and Yamaha.

We do have new flutes in stock and limited stock of used instruments. Please call for pricing and availability.

Instrument Rentals

Interested in doing a rental instead? We can do that too!

Rent-To-Own Program

Flutes are a rent-to-own instrument and can rent from $24 to $30 per month.

We have new and used flutes available for rent! While it may be tempting to rent a shiny new flute for your student, our used flutes are a great option as well! We offer a discounted rent-to-own price on used instruments and every previously-loved flute we rent has gone through our repair shop. They are serviced, cleaned, and the head joint is sterilized and ready to be played by your student.

Frequently Asked Questions

What if my student really wants a new flute after we rent a used one?

No worries! We can apply up to six months of your rental credit toward the purchase of a brand new instrument. This only applies if you start your rental with a used instrument.

Do you rent open-holed flutes?

No, currently we only rent closed-hole student level flutes. We do have some great intermediate and pro flutes available for sale in-store though!

Can I only do a rent-to-rent?

All of our flutes are automatically rent-to-own and you are under no obligation whatsoever to rent it to term. You can return the instrument anytime after the initial three month minimum.

Do you have the book/stand/accessory that we need?

Yes! We have the most popular band books for our area, along with music stands, and everything else on your list.
