Our Education team loves to assist schools in developing and implementing their new string programs.
We understand - this is a large vision, often with a large investment, some nerves, and a number of teething issues to sift through. Not to mention the need to take your vision and mould it into a strategic plan for your leadership and finance teams to approve.
When you first contact the Education team at Simply for Strings, firstly, we feel honoured to be talking with you. There is nothing more exciting for us than knowing that you are considering us to assist with launching your string program - it is what makes us tick and brings us the most joy.
Secondly, we take this opportunity very seriously, and we offer whatever is needed for you to get your program up and running. This could be through starting with our entry level instruments, or perhaps the upgraded option of beginner instruments, or maybe even through our instrument donation program - whatever is needed! We see our role with you as facilitators of what you wish to achieve - we are just on the other side of the fence to make it happen with instruments, accessories and professional development opportunities.
Finally, we are here for you for the long haul. From servicing and repairs to workshops, community engagement and professional development, our aim is to build long lasting relationships to ensure open communication and integrity throughout the life of your program.
Thanks to the trust from teachers and schools all over Australia, we have been able to set up string programs from Mount Isa QLD, Illawarra and Karumba to Queanbeyan, Darwin and Sunshine Coast.
Jon at Scots All Saints College in Bathurst says it best, so we’ll leave it to Jon!
"Starting a string program is high risk; a long term investment with significant up front costs; staff, resources and instruments, plus bows, cases, rosin, chin rests, shoulder rests… Many schools don't even try, but when you watch the eyes of the students learning, hear their aural development and reap the harvest in years to come, it is worth it, ten-fold over!
Simply for Strings have been there the whole way. Shaping our initial dreams into a structured rollout across our timeline. They are literally on call and Teegan even came all the way to Bathurst for our strings launch day, helping with set up and parent education. Simply for Strings is anything but Simple... they make our team's role simple! The Arioso set up was recommended by this superb team and has been the perfect instrument for our students. A rich tone with a robust body at the perfect price for us has enabled us to buy many for our students. The warranty is faultless!
It seems overwhelming to sit back and think about what we have started here in regional NSW. Simply for Strings has guided and assisted greatly across the last 18 months. I can't imagine our program without the direct line to Simply for strings! The long-term investment is gaining momentum and the interest is really growing. We are very excited to watch our students grow musically and academically across the coming years.
Thanks for the help, Simply for Strings! I really appreciate everything you have done!"
