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 long semesters, from late August to late April each year with a winter break.

Group classes meet on Wednesday afternoons, 5:30-6:45 p.m., at the Texas State University School of Music. Private lesson schedules are coordinated individually with your private teacher.


Interested in joining?

Classes for the 2016-17 program have already begun and registration is now closed. 

Beginning students may only join our program in at the beginning of the fall semester (late August). Students with at least one year of experience may audition to join at the beginning of a semester, in either late August or mid-January.

Our classes fill quickly - particularly our grade K-2 classes, for which we maintain a waiting list. You may join our waiting list at any time by clicking here.

For more information, please explore our website, download our program information brochure below, and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
