Dear Colleagues, Fellow Educators and Orchestra Parents:
As a Professional Educator and Performing Musician for over 20 years, I empathize with the dichotomy that is often present with String Orchestra Programs;
1) School Orchestra Programs are often fiscally over burdened, due to budget cuts and difficult economic times,
2) There is always an ever increasing needs for instruments, supplies and professional mentorship.
The Finger Finesse Violin, was originally created to serve as a hand position strengthener and teaching aid, and has been met with great success! I am pleased to share that CraneClassical Enterprises has developed a personalized and unique School Orchestra Fundraising Program, that in addition to raising funds for your program, also assists in promoting your orchestra and in acquiring equipment.
In an attempt to address String Program's needs, I am excited to announce the implementation of
Free Violin Challenge!
Please visit www.craneclassical.com for more details.
There are no costs incurred by your school to enroll in this program. However, your school will make money, have fun and has nothing to lose!
The only "Strings Attached" are G, D, A, E!
Please Forward to Your Colleagues!
Wishing shared success,
CraneClassical Music Society

Schools should visit ebay. $30 for a grade A violin is damn good.

Let me say that the instruments that are being offered in the incentive programs are quality instruments and that you know as an aspiring young 'cellist the importance of quality equipment. I do remeber your post about rehairing of the bow and types of rosin, in order to enhance your equipment to optimum performance. LoveJoy H.S. may wish to look at this program, I would be pleased to correspond with your teacher.

You can go ahead and talk to her if you want. You can find Lovejoy's website by searching google.com for "lovejoy high school." And yes, quality is important but when it comes to school instruments, it's not nearly as important. Most people have their own personal instruments and only use school ones if theirs is temporarily unusable, so spending lots of money from the orchestra fund on school instruments for just a few kids is kind of a waste. Schools should simply balance a good deal with a decent quality instrument. The point of my ebay suggestion They've got brand new violins that come with all the accessories, most being under $100. I ordered one myself for $30, I'll let you know how good it's quality is as soon as I get it, if I remember
