Strings in Our Schools offers small-group violin instruction in four elementary schools in Santa Fe and Pecos, serving 60 students in grades 3–6. The free program provides students with violins and materials. Instruction is sequential, age-appropriate, standards-based, and individualized for unique learning needs.
Strings in Our Schools students go on to enroll in their middle-school orchestra programs, taking their musical study to ever-higher levels. Without Strings in Our Schools, these elementary-level students wouldn’t have the opportunity to learn the violin or be fully prepared to play in their middle school orchestras.
Hilary Schacht, an accomplished musician and longtime, highly successful violin teacher, leads Strings in Our Schools.
