Perform Music Rentals are the lowest cost rental plan in Queensland, with a range of benefits, compared to other programs. These include:
- Simple choice selection of either basic student or upgraded instrument level, with always best available supplied.
- Only 4 payments per calendar year, so you will usually pay half or less than half the equivalent monthly rental of other suppliers.
- Minimum 1 term rental only (no 6 month minimum commitment). Return at any time, to end your commitment.
We will confirm your application by email once received and advise the expected shipping date.
Your initial rental period will be from the time your instrument is sent to you. This will then run to the First week of the following School Term.
A rental is only terminated once the instrument has been returned to us or our drop-off locations. If you choose to return before the end of the minimum period, the minimum period cost still applies.
If you decide to purchase at the end of the initial rental period, what you have paid can be deducted in full from the special student price on the Rental Agreement.
If you decide to purchase at a later date, you can deduct all of the initial period, plus 50% of any additional rental terms you have paid for. This becomes a 'rental credit amount'. Prior to purchase, the instrument always remains the property of Perform Music Rentals.
If you return items in a condition that require repair (outside of normal wear and tear and regular servicing), repair costs may apply. If the instrument is stolen or damaged beyond repair, it is covered by a standard insurance, with an excess of $200.00. A police report is required for stolen items.
You need to contact us if a payment will not go through on the due date (first Friday of each School Term, or the next day or two following). Otherwise, a $5 reprocessing fee/ bank fee will be added to your rental.
Please ensure that you understand these terms, and accept them. if you have any questions about the above, please email us, and we will be happy to assist you.
Blown instruments (flutes, clarinets, saxophones, trumpets and trombones) do require regular maintenance, recommended yearly by instrument technicians.
If your instrument has been rented for longer than 12 months, this is a normal maintenance issue, and not covered in your rental cost. We recommend it be serviced through Australian Academy of Music, 302 South Pine Rd., Brendale 4500. Ph 33899400. Standard servicing for rental customers is provided at a 20% discount to the normal rate.
Stringed Instruments do not have regular servicing requirements, but string breakage and bow breakage can happen, and are not covered by the rental fee. Most bow breakage occurs as a result of the bow being left wound tight after playing. Please ensure to wind the bow hair loose every time before putting it away, and bow breakage is then unlikely to occur.
Regardless of the above, normal warranty issues (eg manufacturing faults) will be attended to, and the instrument either serviced/repaired, or replaced if there is likely to be a delay.
The reservice fee, which applies to all blown instruments, is to cover the service, cleaning and flushing of instruments, for both performance and required for health and safety reasons when an instrument is returned. (If you purchase the instrument, we don't need to do this, so the amount is fully deductable from your purchase price)
You can end your instrument rental by two methods:
- Either simply return it to our drop-off location, being Forte School of Music, Unit3, 17 Billabong ST, Stafford 4053 | Ph 33575556
- or send by Registered Post to Perform Music Rentals, P.O. Box 31 Scarborough 4020
Once we receive it, the rental will be closed, and any bond paid refunded per T's and C's.
This is a pure rental system so it requires the customer to advise us if they wish to take advantage of the purchase option otherwise it is an ongoing rental.
You can convert to a purchase at any time! The first term's rental + the Reservice fee will always be deductible from the instrument's cost, plus 50% of any additional payments, and will even go towards an upgrade instrument.

Anyone can learn to play the violin, and for children, the instrument presents a great opportunity to learn new skills while improving their breathing, posture and an appreciation of many genres of music.
Violins and violas offer many performance opportunities, as there can be up to 42 violinists in a large orchestra! In addition, playing the violin or viola increases the chance of joining a performance group, be it a symphony orchestra or contemporary group (think Mumford & Sons!) At Perform Music, we offer a range of violins/violas for rent in South East Queensland to ensure the path to becoming a concert violinist is much smoother.
What’s the difference between a violin and a viola?
While they look similar, there are a few key differences between the violin and viola, two string instruments. Essentially, the violin is smaller by a few inches and plays music from the treble clef. Violists, on the other hand, have to learn the alto clef. The other primary differences concern the bows, string and pitch.
Perform Music Rentals hire violins/violas make it easy for students to decide which will be their preference, thanks to our single-term hire duration. Should your child decide to switch between the violin or viola (or to a completely different instrument), this is much easier!
