The String Project at UTEP Mission Statement

The String Project at UTEP serves the borderland community surrounding the UT El Paso campus by offering music instruction to young children. The primary goal of the String Project is to provide stringed instrument instruction to children in grades 1-4, regardless of socio-economic standing. Its secondary goal is to provide enrolled UT El Paso students the opportunity to teach music to young children in a “real-life” learning lab. The symbiotic relationship between the UT El Paso and the String Project is enormously enriching and rewarding for all involved. It encourages learning in two tiers: elementary school to college aged learning; student to master teacher. The String Project at UTEP will indelibly heighten the profile of UT El Paso by offering a critical program to the surrounding borderland community and enhancing the overarching UT El Paso Mission to bridge boundaries and encourage access for all.

  • 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. The String Project 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 August 26th, 2017. We appreciate your understanding.

  • Mark your calendar for the informational meeting on Saturday, August 26th at 8:00 am in the Fox Fine Arts Building Room 140. At the meeting you can register your child, pay (cash only) for the Fall semester, attend the first day of String Project classes, 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.
