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.

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.

2022-23 instruction

In fall semester 2022, the ASU String Project is pleased to be able to offer in-person and virtual private lessons and in-person and virtual Saturday classes. Teachers teaching in person will carefully follow ASU’s strict cleaning protocols, and at this time it is recommended that all in-person students and teachers wear facemasks. Virtual instruction will be via the Zoom platform, and the teacher will provide a link for students to click. We will continue to re-evaluate and follow ASU and CDC guidelines throughout the semester.
