We are pleased to announce that students who participate in our violin studio will now have free access to violins through our new instrument library, thanks to the generous support of the Classics for Kids Foundation and the D’Addario Foundation. This summer Classics for Kids granted us matching funds to purchase 10 new violins for our instrument library, and D’Addario Foundation has given us a $1,750 in-kind gift to use toward strings and other instrument supplies.
“Classics for Kids Foundation is delighted to support Key to Change with a matching grant to support their need for beautiful new instruments for their students. Their support for young musicians in the Seattle area is inspiring, and our hope is that the offer of matching funds will further inspire local philanthropy in helping these wonderful young people to thrive.”
– Michael Reynolds, Executive Director, Classics for Kids Foundation
To date, Key to Change has cultivated an instrument library of over 25 violins and violas through a combination of grant awards and community donations. Providing free instruments for our students is a critical way in which Key to Change makes classical music instruction affordable and accessible to a broad range of students in South King County.
“I’m so excited to be able to provide students in South King County with access to high quality violins and violas. It is critical for students during their formative years to have a good instrument to play on, which inspires them to play with confidence and joy for the music they are making.”
– Dr. Quinton Morris, Director, Key to Change
