"Studies show that kids who play a stringed instrument:
- Score higher on standardized tests
- Enjoy more parental involvement at school
- Develop better self-discipline
Despite this, school music programs, especially strings programs, remain vulnerable to budget cuts. Classics for Kids Foundation (CFKF) aims to bridge the funding gap and enhance school music programs by providing matching grants for beautiful new stringed instruments. CFKF provides grants for high quality instruments because of these attributes:
- They're easier to tune and play
- They contribute to a better and more effective classroom
- They're tonally superior
- Better durability and longevity
- They inspire kids to practice and stay involved with their program"
