FACTS

Many of ECYS students come from low income and/or otherwise financially challenged families. These young musicians wouldn't be able to continue their music studies unless our Music Instrument Fund has an instrument available for them to use. For almost all ECYS families in order to purchase a nice music instrument for their child(ren) takes up to a year or two to save money - another case when Music Instrument Fund comes handy. For our Pre-Orchestra Division younger groups (7 y/o to 13 y/o) we must have all transitional sizes violins for all new students to try our classes and see if they have talent/like music/want to continue before their families consider buying them an instruments.

Maintaining and expanding our Music Instrument Fund is one of our highest priorities and important to vast majority of our students.

"We would like to thank ECYS Music Instrument Fund for providing nice cello for our daughter while we were saving to buy one. It gave us more time, and we were able to find and purchase a really good instrument." (Bob D.)
