The NKU String Project is a unique program that introduces stringed instrument playing to grade-school students and affords music degree undergraduates opportunities for hands-on classroom teaching experiences.
Under the guidance of a Master Teacher, a seasoned, experienced public school music teacher, undergraduate students teach children in the community how to read music and play a stringed instrument, such as the violin, viola, cello or bass. In the process, NKU String Project students develop good work habits and improve their ability to collaborate and cooperate in groups.
