Must I eventually purchase the instrument?
No. you can continue using the instrument for as long as you wish. The flexible
Trial Order from Groth Music offers you all of your options every month. If your
child finds that band and orchestra is not for them, the instrument may be returned
at any time. You may make larger payments or pay off the entire balance at any time
once you are certain that you would like to purchase. If you still need time to decide, the
Trial Order allows you to continue making monthly payments until the balance is paid in full.

Is it to my disadvantage to pay more up front?
No. Our rates are low, but if you ever decide to buy, you may pay more toward your principle
at any time. Some stores include finance  charges or other hidden fees on their instrument plans.

Groth Music charges absolutely NO finance charges or hidden fees for the life of your contract!

Why do other stores carry different instrument brands?
Your school Band or Orchestra director selects the brand(s) he or she feels are the best instruments
or your money. Different stores carry different brands and most are made very much the same, making
it a matter of personal preference. Major brand student line instruments (like those recommended by
your directors) are manufactured with durability in mind while maintaining features of high quality
instruments. Groth Music carries most of the major brands for each band and orchestra instrument.

Am I responsible for repairs on the instrument? What if it is lost or stolen?
Groth Music offers an inexpensive Maintenance/Replacement Plan on most instruments. This plan
covers repairs to the instrument and replacement should the instrument be lost, stolen or damaged
beyond repair. All repairs take place in our in-store repair facility and pick-up, delivery, and loaners
are available at no additional charge.

Wouldn't I be better off working through a store closer to my home?
You need not make a trip to our store. Groth Music services most schools on a regular basis and
everything can be taken care of through your School Services Representative. If you decide to visit us,
we are conveniently located on Nicollet Avenue, just two blocks south of I-494 in Bloomington.

Why are the Trial Plans different for some school districts?
Some school districts require additional accessory items to be included with the trial plans. In
addition our school service representatives have set up your district's trial plan to meet the
needs of your child's music teacher. Your representative will help you get everything you need to
make your child's band or orchestra experience a successful one.
