Welcome back! I hope that you have had an enjoyable and restful summer. I would like to give a warm welcome to the new families joining us this fall, we are excited to have you join the String Project family! You can find the 2014-2015 String Project calendar of events here: String Project Calendar 2014-2015

To avoid a long line at Convocation on September 7th, please fill out this form and send it back to the String Project office with a $100.00 non-refundable deposit at your earliest convenience. We will be set up at the concessions table on the 2nd floor taking tuition payments that morning.

Our first day kicks off with Convocation on Saturday, September 6, 2014 from 9:00-10:00am followed by regular classes from 10:00am-12:00pm. Convocation will be held in Bates Recital Hall at the Butler School of Music on UT Campus. There will be maps posted on the walls as you walk into the music school as well as friendly teachers waiting to help direct you to your classes. Make sure to stop by the main table on the ground floor to pick up your personalized String Project folder! We ask that you please report to Bates shortly BEFORE 9:00 with your children. Our program will start promptly at that time. We will begin our Convocation with a performance by the String Project Faculty Orchestra followed by an informative session on activities and schedules for the 2014-2015 year.

At 10:00, we will dismiss students to attend classes. Parents will have the chance to walk their students to their respective classrooms. As we get closer to this date, we will send out a Saturday schedule. New families will be expected to attend a parent education session with Dr. Scott at this time.

Monday, September 8th will be the first week of Private Lessons. Parents will be contacted near the end of August by their child’s private teacher to schedule weekly lessons at the Butler School of Music, be looking out for their email or phone call!

As we get closer to our start date, we will be sending you more details regarding Convocation. If you have any questions about the information above, and if you did not receive an e-mail with the above information, please contact the String Project office at:
