We are happy to share the intentions of this project from the Suzuki Association of the Americas, the Southeast Texas Suzuki Association, and North Texas Suzuki Association. This fund drive is supported by volunteers and by the SAA, so 100% of funds raised will be donated to those in need.

First, we are waiting for communities, schools, and studios to assess the damages and determine their needs before we commit funds to specific uses. We want to be sure the funds are going where they are most helpful.

At this time, these are our anticipated priorities:

1. Instrument, bow, and case repair or replacement

2. Instrument accessory replacement (rosin, shoulder rests, metronomes, stands, etc.)

3. Sheet music replacement

4. Limited private lesson scholarships, for students to continue with lessons if the devastation of the hurricane prevented the family from paying for lessons.  

Thank you for your interest in and support of the Suzuki Hurricane Relief Fund!
