Nevada School of the Arts is committed to providing quality music education to students in Clark County, NV. In addition to our “in-house” programs, we have partnerships with other schools and organizations to bring this commitment into the community.
NSA and CCSD Partnerships
String Specialists in Schools
Through grant funding, we have launched an outreach to several CCSD orchestra programs. We are providing limited NSA faculty as coaches to Middle School and High School programs that are taught by licensed music teachers that are not string specialists. Consideration of the school’s demographic with limited to no families affording private lessons for their students goes into school selection. For many of these students, this coach’s in-person demonstrations on their instrument and speaking from high-level string playing experience is new and particularly inspiring.
In the 2020-2021 school year, this program was at Johnson Junior High School, Chaparral High School, and Palo Verde High School.
