Music Education Students Help Middle School Violin Players

Belmont University music education majors Shelby Nichols, Ruby Chandler, Lacy Thurman and Elyse Burke engaged in a service-learning project partnering Technique and Literature for the Violin II with Moves & Grooves, a  Nashville After Zone Alliance (NAZA) program at Croft Middle School. NAZA is a network of established after school providers, each serving middle school students in a different geographic zone and with their own particular focus and mission. Students who participate in Moves & Grooves explore learning through the arts. Belmont’s instrumental music education majors prepared the Moves & Grooves middle school participants for a violin ensemble performance on April 20 for the Mayor’s Awards Ceremony at the Amazing Race and Showcase at Hadley Park Community Center.
