Trigonometric simplification - newbe question

Hi, 

this is a Mathematica newbe question for sure:

Mathematica comes up with the following result:

       (4*(2*a*Sin[(n*Pi)/2] - a*Sin[n*Pi]))/(n^2*Pi^2)

Now I have the additional assumption that n is element of
{1,2,3, ...) (and a is real) 

How do I tell Mathematica to take this into consideration and 
remove the Sin[n*Pi] term? 

Thanks, 
Walter
