Help Us Bow Our Basses!

My students need two new bass bows so they can produce a quality sound on their instruments.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Help my students reach their full potential in orchestra by having bows that allow them to produce a good sound on their instruments. Anybody who's ever had a car or other equipment that didn't work well knows how frustrating it can be. Help us make music!

My students are a very talented and diverse group, who are energized to learn and continue learning how to play their instruments.

Our school places the performing arts high on its priority list because of the positive impact that they can have on students' academic and social lives. These students want to grow as musicians and attain a high level of performance.

My Project

Anybody who has every played any kind of instrument knows it can be frustrating to have parts of your instrument that don't always work. Our bass bows are aging and are beyond due for replacement. They do not loosen and tighten anymore, making them unable to get the proper hair tension. They are also missing up to 50% of the hair. Students cannot produce quality sounds without a functioning bow. Once we have this equipment, my students will be able to develop their skills and perform at a higher level than they would have previously been able to do. The replacement bows will allow us to play more as an ensemble with a higher quality and more characteristic sound.

These donations will help students across multiple grade levels reach their full potential in orchestra.

They are enthusiastic about learning to play a string instrument, and this will only fuel that enthusiasm as we take our orchestra to the next level!
