National String Project Consortium





String Projects serve a unique
dual purpose. Find out what a
String Project is and the benefit it makes in a community.


​The National String Project Consortium (NSPC) is a coalition of String Project sites based at colleges and universities across the United States. The NSPC is dedicated to increasing the number of children playing stringed instruments and addressing the critical shortage of string teachers in the US. The NSPC is affiliated with institutions of higher education, communities, businesses, foundations, professional music organizations, and individuals who support these goals.
