A new partnership between the East End Community School and the nonprofit 317 Main Community Music Center is designed to expose students to playing stringed instruments, such as the fiddle and violin. It’s all part of East End’s signature Rise and Shine program.

Through the partnership, students are able to take morning fiddle lessons before school starts and even take a violin home to practice later.

Dan Nogar, the school’s dean of students and music teacher said the initiative is designed to give students the opportunity to try a stringed instrument to see if they want to continue playing it.

The Rise and Shine extended learning program offers more then 240 classes before-school classes to students each year.
