Project Description

Strings for Pride

at East Oakland Pride Elementary School

The Strings for Pride program serves students at East Oakland Pride Elementary School with the purchase of 40 violins sized for 4th-grade students. When the school’s music program started in 2019, students learned on loaned instruments, only accessible when in class. The lack of personal instruments created a significant gap in their education and progress. Providing instruments that the students can keep at home will increase the likelihood that their interest and competency will flourish.
