Want to Play but Need Financial Assistance

We understand the hardship instrument costs could have on some families, so Dedham Public Schools offers need-based instrument rentals for all grade levels playing in our music program.

Families who qualify for Free or Reduced Lunch, or have Financial Hardships may be able to rent an instrument for a nominal fee.  Fees collected will help support and sustain the Financial Aid program in the future.  

We have a limited number of instruments available, so instruments will be provided for students on a first come first served and need basis.

Please email Sara Santos at to discuss need-based rentals.
