Missouri State University’s music department is inviting second and third grade students to join its String Project. The String Project, which is entering its ninth year, teaches young students how to play the violin, viola or cello. All second and third grade pupils are welcome, but space is limited.
Informational meetings will be held at 4 p.m. Sept. 18 at both Rountree Elementary music room, 1333 E. Grand, and at Pershing Middle School, at 2120 S. Ventura.
Classes for first-time students who attend either Rountree or Pershing schools will meet Mondays and Wednesdays at 3:45 p.m. at their respective schools. Students of other schools will meet at 4:15 p.m. at either Rountree or Pershing, depending on which location better suits them.
Students who have already participated in the String Project for at least one year will meet at Juanita K. Hammons Hall for the Performing Arts, 525 S. John Q. Hammons Parkway, Room 305, at 4:15 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays starting Sept. 18.
