Instrument Rental Overview | 2017 Year Round Calendar Instrument Rental Day Appointments

Each year, IPSF rents over 2,000 high quality musical instruments at affordable prices to students in the Irvine Unified School District. Proceeds support music programs across the district. The Instrument Rental program offers parents a less expensive alternative to purchasing a new instrument that may only be used for a short time. This innovative program has raised more than $1 million over the years to support Irvine's music program.
