Musical supplies & rentals available for students.
While music lessons are our main focus of service, we offer a variety of musical supplies, music books, sheet music and rentals for our students.
The main tool every student will need will be their music lesson books. Books are not included in tuition and are an additional cost. We carry the music books your student will need to get started with their lessons and your instructor will advise you on the books and materials they request each student to have. As they progress and move into different levels, a new book will be required.
We offer sheet music which is now available through "digital-download." This allows us to access and download just about any song a student may be interested in learning. Fees are charged for each download for sheet music.
We carry other items the music student may need such as guitar strings, capos, guitar picks, guitar straps, violin strings, rosin, shoulder rests, drum sticks, drum pads, tuners, metronomes and more. Music Quarters also sells "recorders" which are very popular and needed for the young student in school which could very well be their first instrument!
For the violin student we have partnered with The Violin Shoppe of Charlotte, NC to stock and provide our students with violins. Students will need to be measured to make sure we have the proper size violin ready for their first lesson. Rental costs for the violin will be $24.00 per month, plus $8.00 per month for insurance and the current tax rate will be added. The Violin Shoppe will charge your credit or debit card each month for the rental. You will complete the rental agreement at Music Quarters and we will send this information to the Violin Shoppe for you. Please note, the Violin Shoppe will need two cards provided on the agreement. The second card will not be charged unless the first card is declined. You will build up "equity" while you rent so learn more about this at time of rental! The Violin Shoppe also rents viola's and cello's. Music Quarters does not keep these instruments in stock so it is best to go directly to the Violin Shoppe so the student can get the proper fitting for these instruments.
Music Quarters rents acoustic style guitars to students interested in learning how to play the guitar. Many times a student may want to try guitar lessons first before committing to purchasing one. We rent classical and acoustic style guitars for both children and adults.
Rental rate per month is $15.00 - $30.00 depending on the guitar size & brand. At time of rental a one-time insurance fee of $30 will be charged. Our rental plan is a rent-to-own program so if you make all of the required payments you will own the guitar. For the young beginner ages 7-12, typically a 3/4 size guitar will be needed. Ages 12 and older will need a full size guitar.
Some guitar brands include a gig bag.

Music Quarters is now renting Digital Pianos! We have partnered with The Steinway Piano Gallery of Charlotte to provide our students with the option to rent a Casio Previa PX770 Digital Piano.
