Free Lessons to New Renters

First time instrument renters, including school instrument renters, can get free private lessons at Santa Monica Music Center to continue their music education.

Cleaning and Repair

We use a ultrasonic cleaning technique which uses cavitation bubbles induced by high frequency pressure to agitate liquid. The agitation produces high forces on contaminants adhering to substrates like metals, plastics, glass, rubber, and ceramics. This action also penetrates blind holes, cracks, and recesses. The intention is to thoroughly remove all traces of contamination tightly adhering or embedded onto solid surfaces.
