For your convenience, there will be a String Instrument Rental Night in the Cafeteria at Quincy High School on
Tuesday, October 5 from 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm; classes will begin the following week (beginning October 12). Lesson
books and music stands will also be available for purchase. We encourage you to rent online at
You will need your school code number 2775 to enter the rental page on the website. You can then pick up your
instrument at the rental night.

Lesson books and music stands will also be available for purchase. Representatives from the K & C Music Company
will explain the rental process and individually fit each student to a properly sized instrument. Instruments must be in
good condition and properly fitted; instruments found through the Internet or in attics seldom meet the needs of the
students. Please bring your child to the rental night to ensure a proper fit! For information about the K & C Music
Company’s instrument rental contract and fees please contact Mr. Walter Andruchow at (781) 769-6520.
