UK Funding Resources to purchase instruments

July 1, 2019, 6:52 PM · Hi everyone,

At MyLuhtier, we often talk to students looking to buy their first serious instrument and we have noticed they are not aware of many funding bodies that can help them. This can either be through grants or zero to low interest loans. We made a page listing many of these organisations in the UK which you can check out here:

We were hoping to start a US version of this page and I was wondering if anyone has suggestions!

But we're not talking free VSOs for impoverished beginners. We're talking about fine/rare violins and help with other expenses for promising conservatory students. There are programs for poor kids to get musical instruments but generally these things are done at the local level within the US. Trying to do something on a national scale in the US would be quite an undertaking.
