Band & Orchestra Instruments





Rocketeria sold the store to Music & Arts—you know them, with branches in Rockville, Germantown and throughout our area. Music & Arts has a full fleet of high-quality, teacher tested and approved school band instruments to rent and sell, as well as tri-weekly shuttle service from this new location to the expert repair facility in Frederick. 


Need to make a payment on your rental or update your credit card information? Call (888) 731-5396.


Some notes about the rental program:

  • We highly recommend the LDW (liability damage waiver). It covers most repairs ('cause lets face it, kids are accident prone!) and gets you a loaner to use while it's away.
  • We love the online rental option. It's the fastest, most efficient way to rent an instrument. During Checkout, on the shipping page, you can choose SHIP TO HOME or SHIP TO STORE. 



If you choose to have it shipped to us, please wait for us to call when your contract and instrument are ready. It's often ready the same day, but can take longer.


The person whose information was entered online must be the one to pick up the instrument.


Don't forget to pick up the other things on your list like reeds, instructional books, music stands, etc. We've got 'em.



Remember that your instrument is a rent-to-own one. All of your payments build equity. Cool thing about that is, if your child wants to try a different instrument next year, just keep the contract in place through the summer and when you're ready to choose the new one, you'll get credit towards that new instrument (as long as it's of equal or greater value)!


Can you buy a Music & Arts instrument from us?
