Ely MN Band Instrument Rental Program
Renting a quality band instrument could not be any easier than through Music Outfitters, Inc.. We carry brand named instruments that are educator approved, including Alpine, Reynolds, Olds, Gemeinhart, and Blessing. Each band instrument is carefully pre-inspected. All instruments are in new or like new condition to assure full customer satisfaction. Music Outfitters, Inc. is dedicated to providing quality products and service to music enthusiasts of all ages.
Why Rent? The Benefits of Band Instrument
Another advantage is that ALL rental payments (less a monthly service charge) go toward the purchase of the instrument. And if you do decide to purchase the instrument, a cash discount is offered for early purchase.
The rental agreement is simple, and there is no security deposit requirement. Why shop anywhere else? NOTE: Our rental program is limited to the Ely/Babbitt/Tower Minnesota area.
We carry instrument accessories including:
You'll also find the Essential Elements 2000 band method books. Essential Elements 2000 was written by the outstanding educational team of Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser, John Higgins, Dr. Charles Menghini, Paul Lavender, Tom Rhodes and Don Bierschenk. This combines the very best aspects of the already successful Essential Elements band method with incredible new features that will motivate every band student like never before.
Book 1 uses unmeasured long tones to establish good tone production from the very beginning and uses quarter notes to teach pulse and rhythm. Book 2 starts with a 14-exercise review of Book 1 - an ideal refresher before new elements are introduced. In both books, new material is carefully paced, sequential, and immediately reinforced. New notes are approached in the easiest ways, then gradually played with wider skips and different rhythms. Each new rhythm is introduced as a Rhythm Rap, then repeated on simple pitches, and finally placed in an appropriate melodic setting.
In addition, we carry the Rubank Intermediate and Advanced instrument books. Rubank is one of the most widely used series of methods for individual or like-instrument class instruction. With a very well-rounded approach including scales, arpeggios, technical studies, studies for musical sensitivity, articulation studies, solos, duets, and studies devoted to the special needs of each instrument, this series provides a fantastic wealth of material for all student musicians.
