TeachersThe String Project is a quintessential model of service learning. It allows IUP undergraduate and graduate students to learn new skills, think critically, and test their roles as professionals in an environment that rewards competence.

The String Project allows our future graduates to refine their teaching skills while still in school. It is more important than ever that our young teachers feel competent as they enter the profession. Because 67 percent of the nation's children are exposed to music instruction through school programs, this is essential, not only for the preservation of our art but for maintaining access for large numbers of students.

Access to music instruction can be divided along economic lines. The philosophy of the university and of the String Project is to maintain the affordability of our instruction to minimize this division.
