You walk around stores and you see that it's time to get ready to go back to school! For some, this time of year is exciting and happy! For some (mostly the students), it's the exactly opposite! At Robert M. Sides, we love the back to school season! This is the time of year that thousands of kids will decide to learn to play an instrument and join their school band or orchestra!
This thought can be daunting. How much will it cost? How time consuming will it be? Will it all be worth it? Cue RMSides! With our risk-free rent-to-own program, you can get a high quality instrument for a great price! Yes, it can be time consuming. Practice times need to happen outside of school, there will be concerts, but it will be so worth it! I'll spare you the statistics of how beneficial music can be to child development and how it can positively effect grades, etc. I'm sure you've heard it all before. But I will say that music is the only activity that engages pretty much every area of the brain, and it's where you make life-long friends!
Robert M. Sides is dedicated to providing instruments to kids in over 100 school districts in Pennsylvania and New York. With our rent-to-own program, you are never locked in with a contract. We offer maintenance and replacement so if something goes wrong with the instrument, you won't have to pay for the repairs! We have representatives who visit the schools every week, delivering instruments, supplies, and music to the schools. If you don't want to, you never actually have to come into one of our stores (although we would LOVE to see you here!)
If you are in need of renting an instrument, head on over to our rental page. You can rent online and the instrument will be delivered straight to the school. Or, come into one of our stores and you can leave with the instrument that day! If you have any further questions, feel free to give us a call at (800) 326-9450! Anyone who answers the phone will be happy to answer any questions you have regarding our rental program!
