Policy & Fees


  • Renter must be a current active member of UMFA in good standing. Join or renew here.
  • Renter will carefully supervise and, if necessary, instruct anyone else who plays or touches the instrument, ensuring that it remains safe. 
  • A refundable security deposit of $500 per instrument is required to rent. Renter is liable for any damage to the instrument and will forfeit part or all of the safety deposit if the instrument is damaged or stolen. Renter is responsible for the care of the instrument and is expected to clean the instrument after each use and return it in good condition. Renter is responsible for covering up to $500 of repair costs if the flute is damaged during their rental period. If the cost of repairs is less than the deposit, the remainder of the deposit after repairs will be returned.
  • If the renter is under age 18, the renter’s parent/guardian assumes legal responsibility for the care of the instrument. UMFA reserves the right not to rent to parties under 18.
  • Renter must pick up and drop off the instrument in person. Instruments will not be shipped.
  • Rental limit is four consecutive weeks by one party. Rental week is seven consecutive days.
  • For UMFA-hosted events, rental fees will not be charged as long as the person using the instrument is a member of UMFA and uses it only at the UMFA event.


Flute rental rates are based on daily and weekly rental periods and vary by instrument:

  • Alto Flute: $5 per day or $25 per week
  • Bass Flute: $10 per day or $50 per week
  • Contrabass Flute: $15 per day or $75 per week
