Instrument Rentals/Repairs

You are welcome to rent or buy your instrument (although I highly recommend renting until your student has been playing their instrument for at least three months.)  If you own or buy an instrument, make sure it is in good working condition and please do not purchase cheap instruments on Amazon.  Tague Music in Fair Oaks does a great job at repairing instruments and also has instruments to rent.

Questions?  Email  I look forward to working with your student, helping to create a lifelong love of music!   -Mila Olson
