Thank you for your interest in the Texas State String Project. Registration for all of our 2023-24 programs has now closed.

The Bobcat Beginner Classes are for students with no prior playing experience. Students participate in weekly classes where they are introduced to everything from the basics of music to the fundamentals of good string instrument technique on their chosen instrument: violin, viola, cello, or bass (grade 3 and up).
The Maroon Technique and Orchestra Courses are for students with 1-2 years of playing experience. Students build basic musicianship, instrumental technique, individual performance, and ensemble skills in weekly group classes and individual private lessons.
The Gold Technique and Orchestra Courses are for students with 3+ years of playing experience. Students build basic musicianship, instrumental technique, individual performance, and ensemble skills in weekly ability-based, mixed-instrument orchestra classes and private lessons.
Private Lessons Only
The Private Lesson Program is for students who do not wish to participate in group technique courses or orchestra classes, but would like to receive a weekly private lesson on their instrument. You may select either a 30 minute or a 45 minute lesson.
Tuition for private lessons is paid by the semester.
10 – 30 minute lessons $120 (One lesson per week for 10 weeks)
10 – 45 minute lessons $150 (One lesson per week for 10 weeks)
On Campus Parking
On campus parking is limited and requires a valid Texas State parking permit on Monday through Friday. Texas State Parking Services offers a purple commuter permit for community members who need to park on campus after regular school or business hours. The fee is $115 for the calendar year (August 2023 – August 2024). Although this seems like a lot, it averages out about half the cost of per-visit parking using the $5 pay and display kiosk in the Pleasant Street Garage.
To purchase a parking permit, parents must visit the Texas State Parking Services in the Mathews Street Garage, (202 Student Center Drive), during their business hours and purchase directly from them. You will need to have your license plate number, driver license number and $115 payment with you and be sure to request a purple parking pass. For more information, please contact Parking Services at 512-245-2887 or visit https://www.parking.txstate.edu.
