Violins For A School In Need.

Hello, I'm an elementary music teacher. I teach the strings program at my school. I'm teaching grades 3-5 how to play instruments. My school is in an extremely poor community and is highly diverse.

When I came to my school I noticed that there were no string instruments. It's impossible to build a music program without instruments. When I began my recruiting there was a very large interest in the strings program. Unfortunately most of the student’s families cannot afford to put food on the table, let alone get string instruments. There isn't enough money in the school to get instruments for every child that wants to participate. Some of these children that have "tough" circumstances at home could benefit the most from playing a string instrument.

I have a need for three violins. With these instruments I can give students the opportunity to learn a string instrument. Learning a musical instrument is a special gift. EVERY child should be given this opportunity regardless of their financial situation. Students need to experience the passion and the magic of music.

With your help we can change the lives of a few children. They will have the chance to excel at a musical instrument regardless of their families financial problems. This is a chance to change a child's life for the better and with your help we will make a difference.
