My students need instrumental accessories in order to help them improve their playing.

My students are some of the most talented young individuals that I have ever met. They are hard working and truly enjoy coming to orchestra. Our group is growing year to year as more elementary students are joining middle school orchestra.
As our program continues to grow, our need for instrument accessories grows.
Many of my students borrow instruments from the school and can not afford the accessories such as cello stops, shoulder rests and rosin. Currently, I have ten cello students and only three have cello stops. I would love for all of them to have a cello stop to use. We are unable to mark the floor since our stage just got refinished and my students stress over making a scratch on the floor. Also, some of my students still don't have books so they are practicing from copied pages.
I could not ask for a better group of students and I would love for them to have equipment that matches their talent.
My students will be able to properly hold their instruments with the help of cello endpin stops. Without them, the end pins slide all over the floor and cause scratches and chips in the new stage. They are very stressed over the marks and having these stops will help relieve stress. By helping them hold their instruments, their intonation and sound also improve!
These instrumental accessories will greatly improve my students' musical abilities by allowing them to practice at home and to hold their instrument properly.
The books will allow them to practice at home and not just in class.
