East End Community School

“It feels like happiness. I never held an instrument before.” – Aluel, Student at East End Community School

“Thanks to our partnership with 317 Main, we’ve introduced 135 third grade students to violin and given them the chance to choose to continue weekly classes at no cost to their families. This provides a great opportunity for all of our students and generates both student and parent interest in the violin and music.”

– Dan Nogar, Dean of Students, East End Community School, Portland.
