The Leading Note Foundation

Posted on | March 30, 2009 | No Comments|

A great music program started recently in Ottawa has been the Leading Note Foundation

The program gives children from low-income communities the opportunity to learn and make music together. Lessons are provided by volunteers. Instruments have been donated by the public and violin shops. We donated a student cello and violin.

Many of the donated instruments and bows needed to be brought into good playing condition. My assistant, together with two other luthiers and a bow maker helped put many of the instruments into working order for the young players.
