Rent your band and orchestra instruments through the Music Academy of WNC with the name brands parents, band directors, and orchestra conductors trust!  With our no-hassle, EasyRent program, powered by National Educational Music Company (NEMC), parents and students can rent their instruments through our EasyRent Direct Portal and have them delivered to the Music Academy, their school, or to their home.  Our staff is available to assist parents in selecting and fitting each student with the right instrument before renting.  All instruments are inspected, properly set up, and tuned prior to customer pickup or delivery to the selected school.

Upright basses can be purchased through the Music Academy and are provided by Germantown Violin Company.  The Music Academy of WNC is a Germantown Violin Company direct dealer and is authorized to sell any of their instruments.  Please contact us directly if you are interested in an upright bass and we can schedule an appointment with you.
