PRESS RELEASE TO STRING INSTRUMENT VENDORS

by Charles Laux on August 8, 2012

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Dear String Instrument Vendor,

You are invited to attend the first meeting of the brand new Kennesaw State University String Project.  The String Project is a KSU-community partnership sponsored by the KSU School of Music.  It will allow students in grades 4 and 5 to obtain affordable group string instruction prior starting in the public school string programs in their 6th grade year.

The classes will meet each Sunday from 1-3 PM, beginning September 9.  In addition to providing a quality introduction to string playing, the program will allow the undergraduate music education students at KSU the opportunity to get hands-on teaching experience under the supervision of our Master Teacher, Evelyn Champion, and Charles Laux, Assistant Professor of Music Education at KSU.

As the program grows it will allow music vendors the opportunity to earn more business and target a younger student population. It is a win-win-win situation!

Our organizational meeting will be held on Sunday, August 19 from 1- 2:30 PM at the KSU School of Music.  I would like to invite you to the meeting in order for you to set up a table and make rental instruments available to interested parents.  As this is the very first semester for the String Project, we can’t predict our turn out.  Considering the price of the program ($95/semester), we are hoping for a positive response.

Please contact Charles Laux to RSVP.  Please inform him if you will be attending or if you will just be sending fliers.  Feel free to contact Charles should you have any questions or concerns.

Dear KSU STRING PROJECT:

Can you please post the information sheet, that has what you will need to maintain your instrument, on the blog. I seemed to have miss placed the one I had from the information meeting. I have 4 children playing instruments and tons & tons of paper.

Thanks
