My Students

My students are very driven and hard working. They are highly enthusiastic about rehearsing and performing a wide range of musical repertoire. They are able to take two music classes per day - one within the school day and one after school. My students take rigorous academic course loads and are still very dedicated musicians! By a having a well balanced group of all instruments, we can achieve our ideal sound! We are a public high school in Southern California.

My Project

If this project is fully funded, our students will be able to practice with good quality violins on a daily basis at school. They will be able to perform with confidence at our concerts, outdoor festivals and competitions!

Your donation will help students to be able to execute playing on their violin with good tone, pitch, articulation and dynamics!

Since not all students can afford their own violin, it is very beneficial when the school is able to provide a student with such a great opportunity to learn about music and to be able to be a musician in a big orchestra at school.
