Welcome to the UTSA String Project website! Here is general information on
the project along with class schedules and registration forms. We have
string project sites at both the UTSA Main Campus and the Downtown Campus.
The UTSA String Project is a member of The National String Project
Consortium, which was created in 1998 by the American String Teachers
Association to help alleviate the string teacher shortage and to promote
string education in public schools.
The UTSA String project provides string education majors the opportunity to
develop skills needed to become successful and powerful educators. Of
course, a primary benefit of the String Project is to offer beginning
through advanced level music instruction to community students on stringed
instruments. Our classes are geared to students in grades 3 through 8, and
we especially seek to serve San Antonio communities without string programs.
The UTSA String Project began in 2002 under music faculty member Eugene
Dowdy, the Founding Director. It was originally funded through a national
grant from FIPSE (The Funds for the Improvement of Post Secondary Education)
and later received grants from NAMM (National Association of Music
Merchants), the Genevieve and Ward Orsinger Foundation, the Ford Salute to
Education, String Letter Publishing, Lockheed-Martin, and numerous other
agencies. In 2008 the UTSA String Project began to receive funding from the
Charlotte Louise Dashiell and Lota M. Spell Endowment at UTSA.
We have expanded the UTSA String Project to serve over 150 community children and
seventeen music major teachers on both the UTSA Main and Downtown campuses.
