After School Strings

After School Strings

The After School Strings program at NEISD gives 5th graders the opportunity to join the Orchestra at their school. Students may learn to play the violin, the viola, the cello, or the double bass. Orchestra classes are taught by music teachers who love sharing their excitement for music with their students. 


If you are interested in joining your school's orchestra and learning to play a stringed instrument, fill out the form below and return to your child's music teacher as soon as possible. Your orchestra teacher will then be in contact with you.


For the fall of 2020, classes will meet virtually and students will be able to learn a new instument through a blend of live Zoom classes, video recording, and virtual feedback from NEISD Orchestra Direcors.  Classes are free of charge. Local music stores are helpful and cooperative with our students in their effort to find the instrument of their choice. There are easy-to-manage rental plans for every budget. The orchestra teacher at your school will help you find an instrument.
