I am going to be totally transparent about our needs.
For the past two years The Music Conservatory, LLC has relied heavily on instrument, equipment and financial donations to get us going in the right direction. We are a private school, but we operate like a not for profit. Most of our Administration works on a volunteer basis and do so at their own discretion with the aim of growing The Music Conservatory, LLC into a Successful Music Conservatory in Warren, PA. Our funds come from the parents and students who pay for lessons and from donations. So with that in mind, we wish to let you know that we are happy to serve the community with our musical expertise and knowledge as we teach future generations how to excel in life using their God-given talents!
What We Need for our students and for the school!
We are in need of more Music Stands! Since we have embarked on the adventure of opening up the area’s Warren County Youth Orchestra, we have received donations that have enabled us to purchase some music stands, but we are in need of more as the Orchestra (and other groups) grow. We also need folding chairs, percussion equipment, piano tuning and repair(costly), instruments, plus instrument repair, and finances for music to keep us going in the right direction. While member dues, registration fees and prices of lessons do cover some of these cost, not nearly enough money can be raised in time to cover these costs before they become a serious need.
Instruments such as working full size keyboards and stands for our Piano Lab.
Any other working instrument or lightly used instrument if possible. We will accept broken instruments in need of repair (they may just take longer to be reused as repairs can be costly)
We also are developing a Computer Music Theory Learning Center!! With this we are in need of working Computer monitors, modems, and headsets. Windows 7 or higher. We could also use furniture such as tables, desks and chairs to make this happen.
As we have opened our classes to the younger ages, our “Little Mozart’s” premusic class, “Tiny Musician’s” preschool class, and “Baby and Me” music class is in need of funds to purchase age appropriate teaching materials, chairs, tables, and instruments. We need your help to get the Baby and Me class started, as we have no equipment for this class as of yet. This is an exciting class that we wish to start as soon as possible. Help is appreciated.
Funds for building projects (a wall/divider between the lobby and the music area, recording studio/sound room,
A very big Thank You to our donors!
We have received several donations in the past couple of years. Forgive me if I do not have them all listed here and I am keeping names private.
We have received little chairs(with this we were able to keep our premusic school class operational and it has become a big success!)
We have received musical songbooks
We have received a mini grand piano!!!
We have received a drum set or two!
We have received several instruments, a trumpet in need of repairs, a couple student guitars also in need of repair, 2 cellos in need of repair, and violins!!
We have received guitar cases(and gifted them to students in need!)
Many of our teachers and staff have brought their own music equipment and instruments into the school so to them THANK YOU!
Without your thoughtful donations we would not be where we are today! We have had a few kinks along the way and made some mistakes, but they have been learning experiences and we are becoming better than ever. We are hopeful and expectant of this new year and have many, many things to come planned for The Music Conservatory, LLC’s students! Please consider making a donation to our Student Instrument Fund today!! Thank you!
