For 20 years, the Northeast Area Strings Academy of Wichita has worked with African American strings students from age 5 through college. Many of our students keep in contact with us as they have gone on to college and into the working world. We love keeping contact and having a 'family' atmosphere of support and encouragement at NASAW. Come join our family!
What is NASAW?
We are a summer classical music school dedicated to the preparation and education of the African American string player. Our goal is to equip students of the violin, viola, cello and string bass with the skills, support and encouragement needed to succeed in orchestral and solo performance. Since beginning in 1994, NASAW staff have worked with students ranging in age from third grade through college level. In addition, we give guidance and support to African American parents who may be new to the world of classical music and the opportunities available to their youngsters. We have seen tremendous progress in our twenty years of existence.
