StringWizards

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.  

We are a fully licensed Non Profit Corporation.  Capital assets exceed $100,000, with over $20,000 in cash and stocks which members can help manage.  We own or control over 200 functioning or repairable bowed instruments, with a significant inventory of parts, shop furnishings and luthiery tools.  Our  parts and labor contributions together with our lease program provide about $20,000 in annual saving to client orchestras which include St. Ignatius.
