Paul Dowley

“I was inspired by the idea of a store of quality string instruments being made available on loan to students of exceptional ability, who otherwise might not have the opportunity to advance in their chosen field due to the restrictions which inferior instruments can place upon their progress.”

Alan Smale

“I believe the educational value of the scheme is of the highest order and sincerely hope that it can continue to help many more generations of young string players in the future."
