What is a “Step-Up” instrument, and what are its benefits?

As your child advances, a time may come when an intermediate-level or professional-level instrument will be necessary to promote his or her ongoing musical development. Intermediate and professional instruments (collectively referred to as “Step-Up” instruments) have extra features that will result in a better tone and make it easier to play higher, lower, faster, and better in-tune. Up to a year’s worth of principal credit from your Rent-to-Own instrument may be transferred on an exchange toward an intermediate instrument.
