  • The University of Texas at El Paso String Project is a fantastic music program that offers low-cost instruction on stringed instruments (violin and cello) to children entering 1st through 4th grades. Participants in the program meet for ensemble practice sessions with the the Master Teacher, UTEP faculty, and UTEP string music majors every Saturday morning and follows the UTEP academic calendar. The String Project is designed to bring the joy of playing music and learning an instrument to children earlier than they may be exposed to it in a school environment.

    Due to the extremely low cost of this program and limited spaces, refunds for the Fall 2017 semester are not offered after September 9th, 2017. We appreciate your understanding.

  • Mark your calendar for the informational meeting on Saturday, August 26th at 9:00 am in the Fox Fine Arts Building Room 140. At the meeting you can register your child, pay (cash only) for the Fall semester, learn how to rent an instrument, and get your assignment for private instruction. This is a very important meeting. All parents should plan to attend, even if this is your second year at String Project. Please tell your friends about the String Project so that we may continue to flourish.
    • The String Project at UTEP will take place on Saturday mornings with three separate Group Classes. Your child will be placed in the class that meets their ability level. Private lessons for all grades will be available at a very low cost to participants, with limited enrollment. 

    • Please click on the "applications+forms" link under the String Project tab on the left hand side of this page to register your child online!
