Instrumental Music

Do you have a musical instrument sitting in your basement or attic collecting dust? Please consider donating it to the Greenwood Elementary School Instrumental Music Department. We will clean it up and do minor repairs. You can use your donation as a tax write-off and feel great knowing that a Greenwood Gator is getting the opportunity to participate in the instrumental music department because of your generosity!

 

Here is a list of some of the area music stores that rent instruments. I recommend going to a violin shop for the string instruments, if possible. If you were at the meeting before Back to School Night, you probably already have this list. If you already own an instrument (or can borrow one from a family member or neighbor), have your child bring it to their lesson next week and I’ll check it out for you. Please rent or buy an instrument from a reputable music store, and not from an online auction or big box store. There are some really bad instruments being sold out there and your child is less likely to be successful if they are playing on a poor quality instrument. Thanks and let me know if you have any questions!
