ok, here's the deal. my girlfriend is studying to be a music teacher at a state college. she needs a new clarinet (the insturment she is majoring in). she is also massively in debt with things other than student loans. I was wondering if any posters on this board know of any available grants that she could apply for to help her get a clarinet. she currently is renting her clarinet and compares her playing that clarinet to my playing a Harmony bass instead of my Stingray. any help or ideas about this would be greatly appreciated, not only by me, but by someone who will wind up teaching music - that one thing we all love - to a new generation or two of children.
