We take safety seriously.

Schmitt Music has thorough procedures in place to quarantine and sanitize instruments to help ensure the health of our customers and staff. When you arrive at the event, you can rest assured that your trial instruments are cleaned. Due to our thorough process, available inventory and appointment slots are limited. Please note: masks and/or face shields are required in our stores at all times. Following health and safety guidelines, party size may be limited (max. group size: 4) per appointment; see an associate for details.

We are now scheduling consultations at your Schmitt Music store; availability varies by location. We encourage you to set up your appointment today!

Booking a selection appointment guarantees that you’ll get individual time with an Instrument Specialist. Appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis, but every attempt will be made to find a convenient time for everyone.


Bring your advancing music student in to compare instruments, or meet with us virtually on FaceTime or Skype, or over the phone. Let us help you choose the perfect instrument!

Schmitt Music: The Next Step Program

About the Next Step Program & Your Earned Equity Credit

Schmitt Music’s “Next Step” band and “Advance” orchestra instrument programs offer an expert curated selection of performance and professional instruments. We also offer a variety of payment options and financing programs that make ownership easy and convenient.

If you are currently making payments on a Schmitt Music “Better Than Rent” instrument, you have an Earned Equity Credit that you can apply toward the purchase of your new Next Step or Advance instrument at our Selection Event!

Your account’s Earned Equity Credit is calculated as follows: BAND instruments – equal to the first 12 months of payments; ORCHESTRA instruments – 100% of your payments made to date (up to the full cost of your instrument upgrade). Earned Equity Credit can be applied to select “Next Step” instrument outfits and is available for customers whose accounts are current and in good standing.
