ENDANGERED ​INSTRUMENTS
PROGRAM


FRENCH HORN | OBOE | BASSOON | DOUBLE BASS

THE MVYSO ENDANGERED INSTRUMENT PROGRAM is designed to help students who wish to switch or double on instruments that are sought after by high school, university and independent symphony orchestra.

THESE SPECIAL instruments have a rich history dating back centuries and arebeloved by composers for their sound. Because of their unusual qualities, young musicians often shy away from trying themor do not have the opportunity to play them due to a lack of availability and qualified teachers.

STUDENTS who have discovered the joy of playing and mastering theseinstruments often find they have more solo opportunities, a higher chance for competition placement, and higher probability of college scholarships.

IF YOU have always wanted to play an instrument as unique as you are we can help!
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED WE CAN:
Provide you with up to 8 private lessons with a specialist .
Provide a discounted tuition rate for playing in MVYSO depending on need.
Help you find an instrument.
Help your school get an instrument repaired so you can play it.
