Most beginner string instrument students will start with a fractional sized instrument (as opposed to a full sized). It is common and expected that children outgrow beginner level (fractional sizes) string instruments. As your child outgrows a fractional sized instrument contact us to exchange it for the next size up. There is no charge for the exchange--simply continue with the same monthly lease payment. When your child is ready for a full sized string instrument, RMI credits 50% of your fractional sizes lease principal payments to our full sized rent to own instruments.
