Program Background

The Sooner String Project began in the fall of 2001 as a part of the American String Teachers Association String Project Consortium. The Sooner String Project was designed to serve as a service-learning program in which young children are given the opportunity to learn to play a string instrument on the OU Campus. Under supervision, the teachers of this program are OU undergraduate and graduate Instrumental Music Education and Performance majors. The program provides invaluable hands-on experiences for these young teachers.
