What: First Foundation Meeting Fall 2012
When: 7:15AM Thursday September 6, 2012
Location: Palm Beach Public Elementary School Office Conference Room


Our Foundation’s Purpose

The Strings Foundation’s purpose is to support the Strings Program by raising money and awareness of the Program. Students in the Strings Program receive free instruments and instruction provided through the Foundation’s fundraising efforts. The Program is entirely dependent on private donations and receives no financial support from The School District or the local and state government.


New Artist in Residence Program

The Foundation’s goal this year is to hire additional music teachers. The “Artist in Residence Program” invites local string musicians into the classroom to supplement Andy Matzkow’s instruction. With nearly 200 students in the program, providing small group lessons is vital for the students’ development as musicians.


Get Involved

We hope you will be able to attend our first meeting of the year. Without your involvement the Strings Foundation would not be able to provide the support necessary for the Program’s success.
