Instrument Bank

The Susanne Beer Cello Corner Foundation Instrument Bank largely consists of  Susanne Beer's personal collection of cellos and bows. Susanne made these available to her students in order to give them the best possible chance in their musical endeavours and now the collection is loaned out to talented young cellists.   


We hope to expand our collection and we are fundraising for the purchase of new instruments and bows. We also very much welcome donations or loans to expand the collection. Please be in touch if you have a stringed instrument or bow that might be able to support a young musician.
