String Project 2014-2015 Registration Form

Marywood University is one of several universities across the US participating in the National String Project Consortium (NSPC). Approximately 80 students enroll in Marywood's String Project each year. The NSPC is dedicated to increasing the number of children playing stringed instruments, and addressing the critical shortage of string teachers in the US. The NSPC is affiliated with businesses, foundations, professional music organizations, and individuals who support these goals.

Established in 2002, Marywood University's String Project is an after-school, pre-collegiate string program for students ages 5-18. Students take small-group lessons in violin, viola, cello and double bass, participate in orchestra and perform in concerts. String Project participants are divided into three levels, beginner, intermediate and advanced, based on student playing experience. Students are welcome to enter the program at all stages. Marywood string faculty teach the classes and ensembles with a team of undergraduate string and education majors working alongside. In this way the String Project also serves as a teaching and pedagogical lab experience for University students.
