Department of Music

Group classes are provided twice a week for beginner string players in grades 3-5 and beginning​ woodwind and brass players in grades 5-6. Intermediate group classes are also offered for string instrumentalists. All classes are held at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center unless otherwise indicated.

As part of our commitment to music education, the majority of our lessons and group classes will be taught by undergraduate music and music education majors under the supervision of Auburn University Music Project coordinators. Undergraduate students will have the opportunity to learn new skills and test their roles as professionals in a supervised environment.

​An important aspect of the program is an affordable fee to make the program available to students who might not otherwise have the opportunity to learn a musical instrument.  A limited number of partial financial scholarships are available based on financial need.
