The experience of acquiring a fine instrument is one of the most important steps in a students musical journey on the world stage.

The violin, through the serene clarity of its song, helps to keep our bearings in the storm, as a light in the night, a compass in the tempest, it shows us a way to a haven of sincerity and respect.

The Music Instrument Fund of Ireland aims to assist young talent as it blossoms by making suitable instruments available where otherwise this would not be possible.

MIFI makes it possible for patrons of classical music to directly nurture and support emerging young artists.

We work closely with our patrons and supporters to ensure the finest quality instruments for the MIFI collection including, sound, origin, condition and provenance.

Why Invest in a Fine String Instrument?

Access to a fine instrument provides students with the necessary tools, to enable them to progress and compete internationally, putting Irish Students on an international stage.
