String Project

Summer Lessons 2019


The University of Wyoming String Project is a program designed to teach young string students and develop future string teachers. Children begin studying violin, viola and cello in the third and fourth grade. First and second year students attend two fifty-minute classes per week. Beginning in their third year, students receive a weekly private lesson and play in an ensemble. Tuition is kept low to allow participation regardless of income.

String Project classes and lessons are taught by University of Wyoming music students under the close supervision of a master teacher. Master teachers and faculty meet weekly to plan classes, prepare and select material, discuss pedagogy, plan and coordinate classes and performances and to critique teaching. UW String Project faculty teach up to six hours per week and receive a stipend for their work.

The String Project was created in 2000 with grants from the American String Teachers Association and the University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences. It is currently funded by the Wyoming Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, the National String Project Consortium, University of Wyoming College of Arts and Sciences, and the University of Wyoming Department of Music.

The String Project is a member of the National String Project Consortium.
