Tapestry Music is recommended by school band teachers in BC for beginning band rentals and purchases. Why? Because we have the most flexible rental program in the lower mainland with a rent to own option, ease of instrument exchange and our buy back program. We only carry quality band instruments with brands that BC teachers know and recommend. And with our in-store repair shop, music school, books and accessories we have everything you need to succeed in music this year. We know your teachers and what they want you to get this year, so getting your instrument and supplies from Tapestry is worry free. Here is a link to a video showing the benefits of band from a parent's perspective: https://vimeo.com/81819035
We are authorized dealers for Yamaha, Jupiter, Eastman, Getzen, Backun, Kanstul, Selmer, Conn, Bach, King, Armstrong, Holton, Leblanc, Ludwig
Please resist the urge to buy that cheap instrument on ebay or at a department or drug store. The old adage is true, you do get what you pay for. We see it every year with brand new "bargain" instruments coming into our repair shop a week after purchase with broken parts (we recommend returning it). It's so frustrating for your child if their instrument does not mechanically function and they're losing ground (and interest) right out of the gate.
Start in August and get a head start!: We have a discounted school year rate (September to June) that you can take advantage of now! This September to June rate is available to you starting anytime from now throughout the summer FOR NO EXTRA CHARGE. This means you get the best choice of instruments, no waiting in line ups, and the option of getting some private instruction over the summer so you're ready to go when school starts. And when you renew your yearly rental in June, it's for a 12 month year (July-June) at the same rate you paid for the school year!
If you have an instrument already: Bring your used instrument in for a free inspection. We can give you some background on the make and history, do cleaning and repairs if needed and make sure that you have the accessories and books you'll need. Normally our repair turn around is 24 - 48 hours, however please be aware that September is extremely busy and it may take a few days for repairs. If you need to get your instrument ready for band the next day, please plan ahead! Better yet, bring your instrument in during the summer and be stress free!
If you're not sure which instrument you will be playing in September and must wait until your teacher gives you the go ahead, bear in mind that after school is the busiest time of day so give yourself some extra time. If you can come in before school lets out (parents should note that your child does not necessarily need to be with you-although it's encouraged).
Plus, anytime you want to buy out your instrument, we will deduct 25% from your existing balance (rent to own price minus payments to date). If you need to exchange instruments later, your rental credit will also transfer over to the next instrument (applicable only to instruments listed in our rental program brochure). Monthly and school year (September - June) rates are available.
We also have a rent-to-own program for guitars and amplifiers including Fender. And we offer daily and weekend rental rates for PA/Sound systems.
