ASU School of Music String Project

Award-winning member of the National String Project Consortium, offering low-cost, high-quality instruction on violin, viola, cello, and double bass.

Home / About


The mission of the ASU School of Music, Dance and Theatre String Project is to offer low-cost, high-quality instruction on orchestral stringed instruments: violin, viola, cello, and double bass. The program supports existing public school string programs and provides string education to those enrolled in schools where no program is available. An additional purpose of all String Projects in the country is to offer supervised teaching experience to music majors, to better prepare them for teaching in K-12 classes or for offering private instruction.

The String Project offers classes on Saturday mornings and private lessons seven days a week. Students will perform in a concert at the end of each semester. To see examples of String Project performances, visit ASU's YouTube channels for concerts by the Saturday classes and recitals for students in private lessons. Use the links on the right for more information.

The ASU String Project is a member of the National String Project Consortium and won the Robert Jesselson String Project Consortium Award for the nation’s most outstanding String Project in 2005.

2020-21 Instruction

During this unprecedented time, the ASU String Project is pleased to be able to offer virtual and in-person private lessons and virtual and in-person Saturday classes. Teachers teaching in person will carefully follow ASU’s strict cleaning protocols, and all in-person students and teachers must wear facemasks. We will continue to re-evaluate and follow ASU and CDC guidelines throughout the year. Virtual instruction will be via the Zoom platform, and the teacher will provide a link for students to click.
