Strings Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate Opportunities

Our undergraduate students are highly involved both on and off campus.

On campus, students take instrumental lessons from our world-renowned string studio faculty, perform in the orchestras, perform on personal and peer recitals, collaborate in chamber music, participate in additional instrumental and vocal ensembles performing in the School of Music and in the School of Theatre and Dance, observe and assist in the teaching and operation of the TTU String Project, and are leaders and members of many School of Music and other campus organizations. Many seek out additional performing opportunities in the professional and regional orchestras in the area as well. And of course, they attend classes with award-winning faculty in music theory, musicology, instrumental and vocal methods, instrumental and vocal techniques, conducting, technology, and many others.

Off campus, students volunteer in school orchestra programs, teach private lessons and sectionals, prepare students for All-Region and All-State Orchestra auditions, assist with Solo-Ensemble instruction, provide service to local youth orchestras, perform in churches and other places of worship, participate in community events, and present the string instruments to local elementary students.
