Instruction will be available for violin, viola, cello and double bass.
Adults who have always wanted to learn to play the violin, viola, cello or double bass now have that chance. For the first time, the Texas Tech University String Project is offering adult string instrument classes for beginners.
The Texas Tech University String Project is designed to provide opportunities for students and adults to receive instruction on stringed instruments at a reduced price. All instructors are music and music education majors at the undergraduate and graduate levels. Instruction is offered on four string instruments: violin, viola, cello and double bass.
An adult string instrument class open house is scheduled from 6-7 p.m. Tuesday (Jan. 24) at the School of Music, 2624 18th St.
At the open house, attendees will have the opportunity to try out instruments, get sized on a preferred instrument, gather information about renting an instrument from local music stores, receive information about other materials needed for class, meet the teachers, ask further questions and register for classes.
Registration for spring classes can be completed online and is due Friday (Jan. 27). Tuition is $90 for group class instruction two days per week, one private lesson and the official Texas Tech University String Project T-shirt, or $120 for group class instruction two days per week, three private lessons and the T-shirt. Payment by cash or check is due on the first day of class, Tuesday (Jan. 31).
