Renting Music Instruments

  • CCSD15 requires that grade 5-8 students enrolled in band or orchestra provide their own instrument and supplies for class, or rent from District-approved music stores. 

    • We recommend families rent these instruments from one of our recommended music vendors. Please see the slideshow below to find out "Where to Rent an Instrument." If a particular instrument is not available to rent from any of the District-approved music stores, your child will be able to rent that particular instrument from the school district for a one-time fee of $100.

    • Should you need financial assistance from the District in order to participate in the instrumental program, please contact Megan Preis, Assistant Director of Curriculum, at 847-963-3131, or e-mail For assistance in Spanish, please contact Cristina Porras at 847-963-3161, or e-mail  

    • District instrument supplies are limited so students may need to play a second choice instrument if their first choice is no longer available.
