Educational Services

Music education is the center of our School Services program. Summerhays Music proudly supports our state and region instrumental music programs. Summerhays Music employs a team of Educational Representatives who support school music programs and customers by visiting regional schools on a regular basis. Our relationships with music teachers in our service areas allow us to better service our customers ensuring that students have quality instruments and accessories throughout their musical career. The education representatives support school music programs by delivering instrument rentals, instrument repairs and product orders. Throughout the school year, our educational representatives can be seen providing clinics, instrument petting zoos and rental events. Aside from servicing the schools, our Education Representatives are active musicians in the community performing in local bands, orchestras as well as adjudicating for numerous State and Region festivals.
