Purchase Option

The first year’s rent goes toward the purchase of your rental instrument. New instruments and upgrade instruments are also available for rental and/or purchase. We offer the lowest prices with no costly rental purchase plans. We will beat any validated offer by any other dealer in Westchester, Rockland and Bergen Counties. Come see our collection of fine, handmade violins.

Upgrade Rental Options

We offer new and virtuoso (for strings) upgrade rental options. As your child progresses, you may want to switch to one of these rental options. This upgrade option is an Ardsley Music exclusive designed to meet the needs of advancing students.  Band instruments are NEW.  String instruments fall under our Virtuoso category and include a premium instrument with upgrade, professional strings and have an outstanding tone.  Both options are competitively priced and the first years rent can be applied to the purchase. Email us or call (914) 693-6639 for details.
