violin music to give away
I am a retired string teacher and will be moving out of state soon. I have an extensive collection of sheet music including etudes, studies, as well as classical literature from beginners through middle level pieces (baroque concertos, classical sonatas, etc.) I would love to give this to someone who could use it. Since there is quite a bit, postage would be too high, so it would have to be someone within driving distance of greater Cleveland.
In addition, I have a large collection of instruction books for the Sheila Nelson method also to give away.
I can understand your desire to keep it local. I gave away many years of STRAD magazine issues locally after mailing a couple of years worth in a box to someone who responded to my maestronet.com or violinist.com "ad."
Maybe there is a student at CIM nearing graduation who is embarking on a teaching career.
You could try placing an ad for these items on your local Craigslist site and see if anyone near you would be interested in your music books.
contact Cleveland School of the Arts - they would probably want it or would know someone who would.
Thank you all for your useful suggestions. I wound up bringing the repertoire sheet music to the Cleveland School of the Arts and the books about music and music education to the Cleveland Public Library.
