Upbeat New Hampshire
Upbeat New Hampshire connects young musicians to the most qualified and accomplished music educators in Greater Boston. Upbeat invests in young musicians with the knowledge that anyone can become an outstanding musician through consistent excellence in practice and instruction. With emphasis on sustained instruction, rigorous expectations, and strong relationships, Upbeat responds to the belief that high-quality music education should be available to facilitate economic and social mobility for all, regardless of identity, means, and location.
Upbeat New Hampshire works in partnership with the Nashua School District and our fiscal agent, United Way of Greater Nashua. There is no cost to the school district and is funded through private donations and grants. Upbeat 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 string instruction in elementary school in group lessons with just three to a group. Students may continue string lessons through to senior year of high school. In addition, students may participate in larger string ensembles or a string orchestra. The ensembles are open to all string students in the Greater Nashua community. Visit UpbeatNewHampshire.org for more information.
Our sincerest thanks to the United Way of Greater Nashua for their support and guidance.
