Donations of Musical Instruments

Donating musical instruments to elementary and middle schools

To mark the 20th anniversary of HIOKI’s relocation to the city of Ueda in 2011, we donated musical instruments including marimbas and tubas to local elementary and middle schools as a way to express our gratitude to the local community.

Instruments are expensive, and there are children who do not have the opportunity to learn to play an instrument due to the difficulties schools face in purchasing and maintaining them. When we became aware of this challenge, we donated the instruments as a way to support the education of the next generation.
