My Students

My students are very talented and motivated musicians who take their orchestra experience very seriously but they have a lot of fun too. They are always excited about being a part of new musical experiences and they are especially motivated to perform for their families and our school community. Melodious music fills the air and the joyous atmosphere of our concerts are very memorable to our school and the community. Music is important for our students self-esteem and self confidence.

My Project

These materials will allow my students to be successful with their musical experience. The strings will be replacement strings when my students have broken strings. They won't be able to participate in strings class if their violin is not working properly.

Happy Strings make children happy!

The bows need rosin in order for them to work on the violin. Students will not be able to make a sound on their instruments without the rosin.

Many of my students need new bows as they are in bad condition. Many of the bows have lost most of their hair and can't be used properly on the instrument.

Please help our musicians!
