The TTU String Project is designed to provide opportunities for students and adults to receive instruction on stringed instruments at a reduced price. All instructors are music and music education majors at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Instruction is offered on five string instruments: violin, viola, cello, double bass, and harp.

At the open house, you will have the opportunity to try out instruments, get sized on your preferred instrument, gather information about renting an instrument from local music stores, receive information about other materials you will need for class, meet the teachers, ask further questions, and register for classes!

The Texas Tech University String Project was established in 2001 in part with the National String Project Consortium and the American String Teachers Association. The program was initially funded by a three-year grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education with matching contributions from Texas Tech. Now, the program is funded by student fees and contributions by Texas Tech University.

Tuition is $120.00 or $150.00 for the semester and includes instruction in group class two days a week, one to three private lessons (you choose your option), and the official TTU String Project t-shirt!
