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.

New Student Registration

New Student Registration for the 2015-16 program will begin in August 2015. Please contact us to register your child for this year's program or look for us at San Marcos CISD Elementary "Back-to-School Nights." Students with experience playing a string instrument may be able to join our classes in January. Please contact us for more information.

If you are interested in joining our program in the future, please feel free to contact us for more information and to join our waiting list here. Our classes fill quickly, particularly K-2 violin classes. For all classes, it's best to secure your space early by joining our waiting list.
