Violin Repair

Non Profit Management 

College Financial Planning

A Program in Two Segments

  • Violin Repair

  • Non Profit Management 

The mission of StringWizards is to assist orchestral and ensemble music programs serving income disadvantaged populations by specifically addressing instrument procurement and maintenance.  Current music programming in public schools precludes orchestral music because of this cost obstacle.  In the past eight years our growth has been phenomenal.  The need for these services far exceeds our current capacity. 


Beside repair, which helps our customer base, StringWizards offers an engaged learning opportunity in non profit management.  Both are skills that enhance college application collateral.  

This are a significant enterprise.  Capital assets exceed $100,000.   We own or control over 200 functioning or repairable bowed instruments, with a significant inventory of bows, bow hair, parts, and luthiery tools.  Our  parts and labor contributions together with our lease program provide about $20,000 in annual saving to our client orchestras which include St. Ignatius.   


Finally, and as part of a segment in financial literacy, students are invited to individually manage the stock market investment choices of a $1000 block of our endowment assets.
