The University of Northern Colorado School of Music is proud to announce the String Project—a community-based music education program providing school-aged students with the opportunity to learn violin, viola, cello, or double bass in an orchestra setting. Led by Dr. Linsday Fulcher, and modeled after the National String Project Consortium, the string project aims to:

  • Provide a safe environment for children and teachers involved in string education.
  • Facilitate the growth and development of string and orchestra programs in the public schools.
  • Create programs that give undergraduate and graduate music students hands-on, supervised experience in teaching, administration, and leadership as they pursue their degrees.
  • Provide by example a model for string program development on local, state and national levels.
