The Suzuki Association of South Florida will be collecting instruments, old strings, and other supplies in hopes of donating to a needy program that may be desperate for these things. Does anyone have any knowledge of a program in need? I know that Michele Higa George had a program in Africa somewhere, but I don’t know the circumstances of that program. Or perhaps somewhere in South America? Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

Inspired by the El Sistema program of Venezuela and other El Sistema-adapted programs throughout several countries, MusicalMinds NC, Inc. has started an after-school music education program at Blythe Elementary School in Huntersville, North Carolina. We especially target under-served students (beginning in first grade), providing them with excellent, engaging general music education instruction with an emphasis on beginning violin lessons. As students mature, we will begin to let them choose an instrument, allowing us to develop an orchestra. This model will then be repeated in other elementary schools. It is our aim to provide a nurturing educational environment that enables students to build self-confidence and self-esteem, further develop social skills, refine abilities to work with others in accomplishing a common goal, and find joy in discovering an outlet for the inborn need to create/perform/accomplish.

As a start-up non-profit, we are constantly looking for donated instruments and supplies.
