My students need these 3 half-size violins in order to learn proper technique.
I teach strings (traditional and Suzuki) for grades K-5 at a magnet school for the arts in a high poverty community.
At my school, anyone who wants to play a string instrument is given the opportunity to do so, but I do not have enough fractional size instruments to ensure that everyone is on the correct size instrument.
Adding three more 1/2 size violins will allow students to avoid the frustration of trying to play an instrument that is too large.
As these instruments will be used for years to come, your assistance will allow many students to have a positive musical experience as part of their education.
