Lilburn: If your child is taking music lessons, renting is an option but you may got locked into a contract. Here's another option, Buy gently used. "Used instruments only depreciate one time so typically our used instruments are 40 to 60 percent less than a new one," Ann Wood owner of Music Go Round in Lilburn said.

Music Go Round will also buy back your instrument for half if you return it within two years. A big advantage for parents worried their kid might not stick with a particular instrument. "For example, this Yamaha trumpet sold new for $850, we've got it for $450 and you can use it for up to 2 years and get $225 back," Ann said.
