Fix my String Bass

Expensive String Bass Repair:

Having studied and performed music for the past 30 years with a Master of Music degree from Indiana University, I enjoy working with kids and being involved in musical activities in my community.  Every year, I volunteer by directing free music master classes for local elementary, middle and high school students at community events.

While leading a master class in 2015 at a local middle school, my string bass cracked suddenly in several places from shoulder to F-hole, supposedly as a result of dryness.  It essentially imploded, rendering the instrument unplayable.  In the interim I have resorted to teaching bass lessons with a cello tuned like a bass.  But this temporary solution is insufficient to for teaching bass and prevents me from participating in community orchestras and music programs.

Please donate to this worthy cause and know that your contribution will result in a more musically engaged community.  Thank you for your support.
