Providing Convenient Direct-to-School Delivery Services for School Music Programs Throughout Eastern Iowa and Northwest Illinois Including Davenport, Bettendorf, Rock Island, Moline, East Moline, Cedar Rapids, Washington, and Galesburg

Serving schools within a 100-mile radius around the Quad Cities Metro area, our school Educational Representatives provide weekly pick-up and delivery services for most band and orchestra instrument needs.

Rent a band or orchestra instrument from us online, and we will either deliver it in time for your student to begin band or orchestra or at your child’s school.

If your rented instrument needs service or repair, we will pick it up from the school, drop off a loaner instrument, and usually return the instrument once it’s repaired. We provide weekly service to schools within 100 miles of the Quad City metro area.
