Hello folks,

Greetings from IL!  I'm new to this forum.  I recently bought a number of used student violins from a local violin shop when they replaced them with new violins. 

Some will be used for my sister's violin studio and some will be sold. Apparently we will have a number of extra violins as we bought them as a lot (Lot of 100 vioilins!).

We'd like to donate some violins to young musicians who may be in financial difficulty. We found an organization who does this job (http://hungryformusic.com/).  If you know any other places I can do this, let me know. 

I might donate one violin per one sold (similar to Tom's shoes??).


Your input would be greatly appreciated.

I think that is a wonderful idea. though i don't know of any organization that does that, the fact that you are considering doing that is just great! I hope all works out for you. there are some great people on this site who can probably really help you out. good luck!

Lead me, Follow me, or get out of my way!

I have found that the best place is your local school orchestra. So many kids want to learn but cannot afford the rental price.

Thanks for your inputs!!  I may contact the music directors of local school orchestras.

If any of you are interested in purchasing these used violins to support the donation, feel free to contact me.  We have 1/2s, 3/4s, and some 4/4s.


All the best,
