Making an In-Kind Gift

Are you considering contributing goods, services, or time to Education Through Music? Here are some guidelines to help you make that decision.

In-Kind Goods

ETM is always excited to receive gently used instruments. For many of our students, having access to an instrument can transform their music education. 

The most valuable instruments include the following:

  • Recorders (new only, please)
  • Orff Instruments
  • Most band instruments
  • Hand drums, egg shakers, and other small hand-held percussion instruments
  • Violins (½ and ¾ sizes)
  • Violas (12”, 13”, 14” sizes)
  • Cellos (½,  ¾, and full sizes)
  • Clarinet and saxophone reeds (2 and 2 ½ strength)

Additional Music equipment

  • Music Stands
  • Rock stops

Unfortunately, we are not able to accept

  • Large drums and drum kits
  • Guitars or bass guitars
  • Sheet music
  • Pianos (unless you can also donate delivery fees)
