Instrument Drive


 

Give the gift of music by donating new or used musical instruments

to our local students!

Email info@santabarbaraeducation.org or call (805) 284-9125 to donate.

Have an old instrument gathering dust in your closet or garage? Dust it off and put it into the hands of an aspiring young musician today. All types of instruments are accepted, from ukuleles to flutes.  In particular, there is a strong need for alto saxophone, clarinets, violins, and trumpets.

All donated instruments are carefully inspected, repaired, and then placed in the hands of students such as Raul. Raul was a top violin student who decided that he wanted to learn to play the trumpet.  A professional model Yamaha trumpet was donated through the Instrument Drive and because of his demonstrated discipline and love of music, Raul was chosen as the recipient of this coveted instrument. Another success story is that of Daniella. Daniella is one of our first elementary school student oboe players. Oboe is not generally taught, but thanks to the Instrument Drive, we were able to give her the instrument of her choice!
