Upbeat New Hampshire, formerly known as “Sinfonietta Strings”, works in partnership with the Nashua School District (where the majority of our students attend school) and United Way of Greater Nashua (our fiscal agent.) There is no cost to the school district and is funded through private donations and grants. Upbeat New Hampshire promotes social learning and good study skills by enabling a student to be part of a group of peers working as a team.
We begin violin, viola and cello instruction on-site at the students’ elementary school in semi-private lessons. Cello students attend after school lessons at Nashua North High school. There are just three students in each lesson. Middle school and High school students may continue after school lessons at Nashua North. We offer after school double bass lessons to students in 9th grade and older on site at Nashua North.
All students receive an instrument to use for the school year.
