Practice Marimba Guide

All the info you need to rent or buy a practice marimba

Learning to play the marimba can be challenging. Therefore, having access to a practice marimba at home is critical.  With just a few marimbas at school, students typically don’t have enough time to practice the marimba and become proficient at school.

Over the past decade, practice marimbas have become more readily accessible and are now even required by some percussion instructors.  We created this site to help parents navigate the complexity of obtaining the practice marimba.  Now you’ll be able to understand all your options for purchasing, or renting, a 3-octave, 4.3-octave or 5-octave practice marimba.
