Virginia Tech String Project
Our Mission: To provide high quality and inclusive string music education for our community; and to prepare Virginia Tech's undergraduate music students for success in their futures as music educators.
History: The Virginia Tech String Project, founded in 2007, is the signature community enrichment program for the department of music at Virginia Tech. Our program is a member of the National String Project Consortium, founded in 1998, to address a national string teacher shortage through a plan that establishes teacher-training programs at universities throughout the country. Master string teachers work with Virginia Tech’s undergraduate music students to teach all classes. We fill a significant gap in the public-school system curriculum by providing beginning lessons in strings to students in the 3rd and 4th grades as well as providing a space for older students’ musical growth through multiple string orchestras for those with prior experience.
