About the String Project
The Kennesaw State University String Project is an initiative that began in the Fall of 2012. The program, sponsored by the KSU School of Music, provides an opportunity for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students to receive instruction on the violin, viola, or cello. In addition, the String Project provides KSU’s undergraduate music education students the opportunity to gain valuable hands-on teaching experience under the supervision of their university professor.
String Project classes are offered at two locations:
- Pitner Elementary School, Tuesdays from 3:30-4:45 PM
- Marietta Center for Advanced Academics (MCAA), Tuesdays from 4:15-5:30 PM
If your child would like to learn a stringed instrument (violin, viola, or cello) please take advantage of this excellent opportunity! There are several levels of classes offered, based upon student experience:
Prelude Strings is intended for beginning students — no prior experience is necessary! In class we will teach students everything they need to know about playing their instrument, including care, music reading, and making a beautiful sound!
Overture Strings is a class for students who have participated for one year in the KSU String Project or have equivalent experience in private lessons or other group instruction. (Currently only offered at Pitner Elementary.)
