In 2010 NEMPAC and the Eliot K-8 Innovation School began a partnership to provide Eliot students with in-school music education to Grades K – 8, as well as after-school Eliot Band, Eliot Music Ensemble, and Eliot Choir.
Currently, we offer in-school music education to grades K-3, an in-school Strings Ensemble, an in-school upper school theatre class, and the After-School Eliot Band Program. Additionally, we offer after-school pick-up options and private music instruction on-site.
Our in-school general music program is taught by instructor Laura Raty. Our Strings Program instructors are Brooks Berg, Harriet Hung, Rafael Natan, and Peter Sumner. The Eliot Band Program is led by instructor Kristi Scaccia with instrument specialists Emy Hardy, Joel Kayser, Matias Moar, and McKena Stickney. The upper school theatre class is taught by NEMPAC Musical Theatre Program Director Michaela Barczak.
Private Lessons at the Eliot School are taught by Laura Raty and Pedro Sanjur.
The NEMPAC/Eliot School Music Programs are, in part, funded by the BPS Arts Expansion Fund at EdVestors and the Liberty Mutual Foundation.
