Instrument Exchange Program (IEP)
Through our Instrument Exchange Program (IEP), we donate instruments and instrument repair services to schools in need so their music programs run effectively. With cuts in funding for the Arts, we felt it was necessary to assist in keeping what schools currently have sustainable and, when we can, donate instruments to enhance the music program. Additionally, we provide instruments to children in need to help further their goal toward learning to play and possibly becoming a professional musician.
Schools are able to receive up to three repairs, per school year, at no charge and we will try to accommodate what we can from the school's instrument wish list provided to us. We want to provide the highest level of repair services, therefore, we've partnered with Ric Santiago and his company, Bay Winds and Strings (Clearwater, FL), to provide quality services.
