UTC STRING PROJECT
SPRING SEMESTER START DATE CHANGED:
Monday, January 14, 2013, 6:00 PM
Although strings are the backbone of Western classical music, access
to learning a string instrument is difficult to come by in many parts
of the US. The String Project at UTC provides an opportunity for school-aged
children to learn a stringed instrument at a reasonable cost. Students
receive private and group instruction on their chosen instrument from
qualified music interns under the supervision of an experienced string
music educator. The UTC String Project is associated with the National
String Project Consortium.
Students in grades 3-12 may apply for admission to the program. If an
orchestra exists at the student's school, they must be enrolled
in that group to participate in the String Project.
The program runs on a similar calendar as the Hamilton County School
year from September to December in the fall and January through April
in the spring. Students will be scheduled for group sessions and individual instruction. Please see handbook for schedule details.
There will be a culminating concert each semester for the students
to demonstrate their skills.
Class meetings and lessons will be held in Cadek Hall on the UTC Campus, 705 Oak St., 37403. Cadek Hall is located adjacent to the UTC Fine Arts Center and directly behind the Lupton Library.
- How much?
First year students pay $50.00 per semester. Second year and above
students pay $65.00 per semester.
UTC has a LIMITED number of instruments available for rental. Students
who need to rent an instrument pay $70.00 a semester for a violin
or viola, or $65.00 a semester for a cello or bass. If we have run
out of instruments, you will need to make your own arrangements.
