All 3rd and 4th grade students are eligible to take group music lessons on the violin, viola or cello in the Hingham After School String program at each elementary school. Your school's H.A.S.S. instructor will visit your child's classroom in September giving demonstrations of each available instrument. If you are not already renting an instrument, we recommend you rent one through Acoustic Strings of New England. For more information about instrument rentals, please go to the Rental Company page on the website.
