Mrs. Miyamoto from Honolulu HI is requesting Musical Instruments through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

School Orchestra Students Need New Strings

Help me give my students new sets of violin, viola, and cello strings. Our class orchestra violins, violas, and cellos are in need of new strings. Several instruments are missing strings making it difficult for students to play.

My Students

Our students love music. They are passionate about music and music-making. Music is what keeps them motivated to come to school. They excel in music, despite our school being situated in the midst of five federal housing projects.

Most, if not all, of our students come from homes of highest poverty.

Our school has at a 70% highly disadvantaged rate.

Beautiful music comes out of our orchestra room. Our students play with great passion. Music is what they excel at. Our students would never have been able to play in an orchestra were it not for the school orchestra program.

My Project

Our orchestra violinists, violists, and cellists are in need of new strings. We have many instruments currently missing strings due to wear and tear of many hours of intense practice. The new violin, viola, and cello strings will replace missing and worn out strings on our instruments.

Fresh new strings and having all of the strings on the violins, violas, and cellos will enable our students to continue to learn and make beautiful music.

New strings will sound acoustically better than worn out and missing ones. The sound of the violins, violas, and cellos will be more resonant which will in turn, encourage our students to continue to practice and develop skills on their instruments.
