Here are some quotes from parents of String Project students…

"I can’t tell you how very happy I am with my daughter’s involvement in the String Project. She is so proud to be playing the violin and has developed self-confidence and pride in her accomplishments as a new musician. I am so appreciative of this opportunity KSU music has provided to our schools!"

"How unbelievably lucky we are to have found the KSU String Project! Our fifth grader learned so much this year and enjoyed every Sunday afternoon rehearsal as well as the winter and spring concerts. Mr. Laux and Mrs. Champion are amazing teachers — knowledgeable, disciplined, organized, and, most importantly for 4th and 5th graders, patient! The children thought it was really cool for the KSU students to be in the class helping them. Our son developed a good rapport with one of the students and is now taking private lessons from him. The foundation our son has gained this year is invaluable as he continues his violin studies. We can\’t say enough good things about the program, and we are excited for more and more folks to hear about this amazing opportunity for beginner string students."

"This program is very unique & exceptional. My daughter was so excited to be able to learn to read music & make music. Never wanted to miss class and practiced religiously daily. Much appreciated and continued great success."

"Thank you for such a great year! In two semesters of KSU String Project you’ve transformed our son. He had never touched a violin before your class and now he’s a highly motivated young musician. And all the while you made it fun for him too! We love hearing him practice and play at home."

"I wanted to let you know how pleased we have been with [our daughter’s] progress in the String Project program. What a wonderful opportunity to learn an instrument at an extremely affordable price… I am so thankful to have found this program. We look forward to continuing next year in level 2. We certainly will spread the word on this wonderful program."

"Enrolling my child in the KSU String Project was an excellent decision. From 2013-2015, my 4th/5th grader learned to play the violin, read music, and to perform in a group. This was an affordable way to make a lasting investment in my child. This program is a great value!"
