Small Violins Needed for some Special PreTwinkle Classes

November 8, 2005 03:40

I am looking for small violins.

I am doing a little more persistant and determined research to find violins for some violin classes for Preschool chilren. I plan to donate my teaching time for a project that offers violin instruction for children at risk in our local community. Before I approach the potential arts organizations I may be collaborating with for classroom space, I would like to have some idea where we can obtain suitable instruments for my proposal.

So far I have found only one source that offers instruments that are supported by grants for such a purpose. The problem is that this organization only offers instruments that are too large for the children I am most likely to be working with.

IF ANY OF YOU KNOW OF ANY SOURCES FOR SMALL VIOLINS IN 1/32 or 1/16 SIZE OF SIMILAR QUALITY TO THE SUZUKI OR CAO AT A DISCOUNT PRICE I would love to hear from you.

When the children and their parents Graduate from our "PreTwinkle Program" I would like to be able to present them with a violin that is the right size for each child ages 4 - 5.

IF they were available at 1/2 the market price I think I would be able to request matching funds from sponsors in our local community for each child.

I would love to hear from you before Christmas. PLease give me something to celebrate this Christmas. I all I want is a bunch of great little violins under the Christmas tree for these children.

Thank you in advance for any good leads.

Small violins needed for a Special "PreTwinkle class"

November 8, 2005 03:18

Dear Fellow musicians:

I am doing a little more persistant research lately to find violins for some violin classes that I will be offering to do as a volunteer for children at risk in our local community. Before I approach the potential Arts organizations I may be collaborating with for classroom space, I would like to have some idea where we can obtain suitable instruments.

So far I have found only one source that offers instruments that are supported by grants for such a purpose. The problem is that this organization only offers instruments that are too large for the children I am most likely to be working with.

IF ANY OF YOU KNOW OF ANY SOURCES FOR SMALL VIOLINS IN 1/32 or 1/16 SIZE OF SIMILAR QUALITY TO THE SUZUKI OR CAO AT A DISCOUNT PRICE I would love to hear from you.

When the children and their parents Graduate from our "PreTwinkle Program" I would like to be able to present them with a violin that is the right size for each child ages 4 - 5.

If I could get them at at least 1/2 the market price I think I would be able to request matching funds from sponsors in our local community for each child.

I would love to hear from you before Christmas. Give me something to celebrate this Christmas. I all I want is a bunch of great little violins under my tree.

Thank you in advance for any good leads.
