SJSU String Project

SJSU’s String Project is a nationally recognized teacher-training program that provides undergraduate and graduate music students with practical, hands-on experience teaching group violin, viola and cello classes. Focused primarily on our local population, the SJSU String Project offers area elementary and middle school students an accessible opportunity to study a stringed instrument. Students do not always have the opportunity to take a strings class in school and music classes and instruments available outside of school are generally very expensive. We offer instruments for in-class use to all students and classes for a very small fee.

In order to continue providing high-quality music instruction and expand, we need your support.

Funding pays our student-teachers and allows us to purchase instruments, music and supplies for classroom use.


String Project is an invaluable resource for area students and allows our university students the opportunity to put into practice what they have learned in their fundamentals classes and teacher training sessions.
