Texas State String Project

Welcome to the Texas State String Project!

The Texas State University String Project proudly offers affordable string instruction for children in the San Marcos area. We invite students in grades K-5 to join us for a program full of music learning and fun on the Texas State campus. The program is open to public-, private-, and home-schooled families throughout the Central Texas area.

Our program consists of weekly group classes and private lessons during each of the university's semesters.  Group classes meet on Wednesday afternoons, 5:30-6:45 p.m., at the Texas State University School of Music. Private lessons are scheduled in cooperation with your private teacher.
