Several years ago, a small group of professional musicians joined forces with local friends who support fine arts in our community; Project String Power was born. Today, Project String Power offers a unique experience to East Texas in Carthage. Our students, ages five and up (and up, and up), love learning and playing stringed instruments. They also love the fascinating variety of musical styles our instructors teach.
To join Project String Power, you must be at least six years old. All instrument lessons are $25 for a 30 minute lesson given once weekly. As students gain skill they may be included in a group session such as the Stringed Orchestra, Texas Made Rock Band, Silver Dew Bluegrass Band, Forte Cello Ensemble or the Pineywoods Harp Ensemble.
East Texas is well-known for its talented musicians, and Project String Power seeks to enhance this long tradition by providing opportunities for talented musicians to perform at local concerts and in recitals.
