My students need quality violins for our string orchestra.
Do you remember what it was like when you first fell in love with music? Our students absolutely love playing the violin, but we are in need of instruments.
In our all-girls dual-language school, every student learns how to play the violin as part of the curriculum.
Currently, we teach 350 students daily and are in great need of quality instruments. Our school is located in the lowest congressional district in the country and access to quality instruments is limited. Our music program starts in kindergarten and follows the Suzuki Method; which emphasizes the importance of making music a daily activity. This way music truly becomes a part of who our students are as individuals, even when there are many outside influences. Our school's vision is to build future woman leaders, and our goal is to equip them with all the necessary tools to become successful.
With these new instruments, our students will be able to become well-rounded musicians and individuals. Music is a part of everyday life here at school and our girls enjoy violin class very much. Our upper grades have performed throughout NYC, for the Borough President, the Speaker of the House, at the Metropolitan Museum, Yankee Stadium, the National Arts Club, and various other venues. We have students that attend Juilliard and Turtle Bay Music School. Our students have so much pride and sparkle when they perform! With these violins, more students will have access to these amazing opportunities.
Our school is in need of violins and would greatly appreciate any help.
We are located in the South Bronx and any contribution is extremely valuable. Music is a part of our students' lives and with your help, they can continue playing the violin and growing as musicians.
