String Project receives grant

The Texas State University String Project has been awarded a National String Project Consortium (NSPC) – National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) Foundation grant. One of five String Project sites across the country to receive funding, the TXST String Project will use this $3500 award over two years for TXST student intern-teacher wages and enable the purchase of equipment that will enhance their effectiveness and teacher education.

“The National String Project Consortium, in it’s 20th year, continues to build excellence in future string music educators across the county as well as provide string instruction to communities that seek enrichment in the arts,” said Dr. Elizabeth Reed, Executive Director of NSPC. “We value the NAMM Foundation’s continued generous support of our mission to further increase the value of string music education across the country.”
