What We Do
The UML String Project offers string training to Lowell Public School students, targeting diverse, underserved neighborhoods. Students are taught violin, viola and cello by UML music majors, distinguished professors and guest artists. Creative Sound Play (CSP) introduces participants to music technology, improvisation, composition and music from different cultures. A one-month Summer String Camp offers intensive sessions with individualized training and ensemble experience as well as CSP classes.
The UML String Project provides a supportive, creative and educational environment where youth of diverse backgrounds learn to interact, exchange ideas and make music together. The young musicians build self-confidence and self-esteem while developing a sense of community and responsibility. We have created a cultural musical community for parents, teachers, and students and are becoming an important cultural and social presence in the Lowell community.
