About this Grantee

To increase the self-esteem and fine motor skills of their first- through eighth-grade students with special needs, Mr. LaBarbara and Ms. Parrott have created an adapted orchestra program. Students learn to play the cello and read music, and participate in orchestra activities with students in general education classes. At the end of the year, the students perform at a concert for their families.
