SUN CITY STRING PROJECT AT UTEP

SUN CITY STRING PROJECT AT UTEP
PI: Stephanie Meyers
Sponsor: NATIONAL STRING PROJECT CONSORTIUM
Music
Amount awarded: $10,000

The String Project at UTEP is a viable music education initiative for 1st-4th grade students who wish to learn a stringed instrument before 5th grade. Children of many diverse socioeconomic levels have the opportunity to interact with music educators at UTEP. The project is designed as a multi-decade program, created with guidance from the NSPC. The startup stage has been implemented with participation of 55 elementary school students and eleven carefully selected UTEP student teachers. These teachers benefit from the unique experience of teaching in a "live" learning lab, while impacting young students in the surrounding borderland community. The project will undergo continuous assessment and impact evaluation.
