Sinfonietta Strings of Greater Nashua
Sinfonietta Strings of Greater Nashua is a United Way program that teaches violin and viola weekly to students in the Nashua public schools and offers an after school string ensemble to all string students in the Greater Nashua area. Before Sinfonietta Strings there was no stringtraining in these schools.
This program complements existing school band programs and enhances the regular classroom program, teaching children to focus while learning how to read music and play an instrument. It promotes social learning by enabling a child to be part of a group of peers playing the same instruments, working as a team. It provides a creative outlet, recharges their energy and gives students a positive growth experience after school.
Once a week, students take 30 minute lesson on violin or viola in groups of 3 students each. After school the string ensemble for older and more advanced players currently enrolls students from the Greater Nashua area. Students all perform concerts at least twice yearly, and some perform in continuing care communities.
Your kind donation will help Sinfonietta Strings serve more schools and provide an instrument for those in need.
