Do you have a used musical instrument you no longer need? You can make it sing again in the hands of a young musician. It’s time once again for It’s Instrumental, a musical instrument drive that benefits aspiring young musicians in the Dayton region. One of the best things we can do is inspire that next generation of music lovers,” said Shaun Yu, the president and CEO of Dayton Public Radio. “The best way to deepen that love of music is to actually make it.”
During the past few years, hundreds of instruments have been collected for students in area schools, and for musicians in the Q the Music program. Q the Music is a daily after-school string orchestra program that supports the musical, academic and social growth of at-promise youth in the Dayton community. Located at Ruskin Elementary, students in grades 3 through 6 receive academic tutoring; take group lessons in violin, viola and cello; and participate in string orchestra rehearsals.
All kinds of instruments are accepted, even those in need of repair, as well as accessories like carrying cases and bows. You can even get a receipt for tax purposes.
