Violins for Everyone!

Help me give my students the opportunity to use a violin owned by the school, when they may not have the resources to purchase one for themselves.

My Students

My students are the best of the best! We are excited about music and always ready to make improvements. Some students' families do not have the resources available to purchase or rent their own instruments and materials for class. Every child in class is uniquely talented and ready to give their all, no matter the resources that they have. Every child should have access to the necessary materials for them to be a successful musician. Orchestra helps build confidence and self esteem, on top of discipline and appreciation of music.

My Project

Our students are in need of the opportunity to learn with good student violins. Some families are unable to purchase these at this time. When a student holds a proper instrument and is able to tune it themselves and call it their own for the year, they become motivated to succeed. Along with success, students gain responsibility, self esteem, and discipline in the arts. This discipline can transfer to other areas of their life, as well. It is my hope and expectation that our Orchestra students all have a proper instrument and materials that they need to be a successful musician.
