Choosing An Advanced Instrument
N-Tune Music and Sound will work with you to choose the best advanced instrument for your child, whether that is intermediate or pro-line.

Is My Child Ready for an Advanced Instrument?
If you rented or purchased your student instrument from N-Tune Music and Sound, your student is playing on a quality instrument! However, it is more than likely an instrument that was designed to help your student be successful as a beginner. It is also true that some students play their entry level instrument all the way through high school and have great fun doing it.
At some point, sometimes as early as the end of the first year, your student will reach the potential of their beginner instrument. As the competitive phase of their musical journey arrives, many students will find their beginner instruments begin to limit their success.
Students with advanced instruments find an advantage to having an intermediate, or possibly a pro-line instrument. Whether it is in the characteristic sounds, the ability to play more technical passages easier, or additional design features, the intermediate or pro-line instrument will have the advantage over a student-line instrument.
