An Online Community for String and Orchestra Teachers

Sponsored by the University of South Carolina

Sponsored Research Programs

and the American String Teachers Association


Special thanks to the Spring 2006 section of MUED 464. Thanks also to Mrs. Stacy Wiley for collecting and editing the second round of video.

There are many dedicated persons working with stringed instrument students all over the country (and the world!) Many continue to learn and grow through inservice and from talking to colleagues, but the nature of the job makes it difficult to get out of the classroom and watch others. Several teachers have contributed to this site and we are grateful to them.

For this site, we have gathered video clips of talented teachers from several parts of the country. We hope that watching these may be helpful and useful. If you are interested in participating in this project, I have some guidelines on the “How to Contribute’ link.
