Home / About


The mission of the ASU School of Music 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.

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.
