Marywood's String Project is an after-school, pre-collegiate string program for students ages 7-18. Participants 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. Students are assigned to a group based on experience.

Participants may enter the program at any level. Marywood faculty teach the classes and ensembles alongside Marywood String Majors pursuing degrees in Music Education, Music Therapy and Performance. In this way, String Project follows the mission of the National String Project Consortium.

Approximately 125 students enroll in Marywood's String Project each year. Marywood is one of several universities across the U.S. participating in the National String Project Consortium (NSPC). The NSPC is dedicated to increasing the number of children playing stringed instruments, and addressing the critical shortage of string teachers in the U.S.
