Guitars Going Unstrung
My students need replacement guitar strings for our first group guitar class.
There is nothing more startling than being in the middle of your first guitar class, tuning, and have your first guitar string break just as you start your song.
Our school is openly called the worst school in the state of Hawaii.
nearly 80% of the students are native Hawaiian, but live in what is considered by some the worst part of the island. Even though this state is called paradise by most people, the students of this school often do not get to enjoy the benefits of living in such a place. The children of this school are among the most humble students on the island. Even though most have very little, they are always willing to share what they have with those who are without.
We are requesting a large supply of replacement guitar strings that will hopefully last us the next few years. This is the first year that the school has allowed a group guitar class, and the enrollment and attendance is quite high. The school has provided zero budget for this class, and as a result left the class entirely reliant on donations. So far, we have been graciously awarded with 25 donated guitars, but not replacement strings when the initial set wears out. The students love this class, but we all dread the day that the strings start to give and break because we have no supply of replacements.
Our students are some of the most musically talented on the island.
This is the first year that they have had the opportunity to learn guitar at school. However, once the strings start to break, we have no replacements. Without a supply of backup strings, the class will be unfortunately short lived.
