Cache Instrument Rentals
It's time for Mountain West String Academy's fall instrument rental check-in/check-out. This is for all students going in to the 2nd or 3rd year orchestra classes who are currently renting for the summer and those who would like to rent for the school year but haven't rented for the summer. We will be spacing out the rental days a little more than originally planned to help with social distancing. The rental days are:
August 8, 8-11 AM
August 14, 5-8 PM
August 15, 8-11 AM
This will take place at the River Heights Shop (433 S 500 E River Heights).
Everyone who has rented for the summer will need to come to one of these dates, regardless of whether you are returning the instrument or renting for the school year so that we can check the condition of the instrument and address any concerns. We will be doing rentals outside the building again and we ask you to please park along the road and watch for any pedestrians when arriving and leaving. We will be wearing masks and sanitizing between students and we ask you to please wear a mask as well. We will have a sizing station available if you would like to have your child's size checked. We ask that he or she wears a mask for this as well.
Please make sure that everything that came with the instrument is included when you return (rosin, endpin strap). If anything is missing, we will have to charge you for the replacement. School year rental is $70 and will be due when you come to rent the instrument. We accept cash, check, or card (additional $2 for card fee).
Students in the 3rd year (6th graders) who need an instrument in the larger sizes will have the opportunity to rent through Cache County School district instead of MWSA. Cost is $100 for the school year or you can participate in a $15/month rental installment plan. We will have more information at the shop if you are interested in this option.
Regular shop hours will start up again on August 5 (12:00 - 2:00 PM) and continue through August, if you cannot make it to any of the dates listed above, you can call to schedule a time at the shop during shop hours. Because of the adjusted school schedule this year, our shop hours will be 12:00-2:00 every Wednesday that school is in session (no shop hours during school breaks). Any instrument not returned by August 29, will lose their deposit. Instruments rented for the school year after August 29, will be charged a $10 late fee. Please call 435-770-9189 with any questions you might have.
