The Shoals Symphony at UNA is pleased to offer the UNA String Project under the direction of String Master Teacher Christina Volz-Stomackin. Professor Volz-Stomackin is the concertmaster of the Shoals Symphony at UNA and adjunct professor of music at UNA. Her heart for string education is contagious, and anyone interested in learning a string instrument may apply (ages 5 to 105)!

The UNA String Project will offer string instruction in Violin, Viola, Cello, Guitar, and String Bass in two instructional settings:

  • • Class Strings: Students will be given the opportunity to learn in a classroom setting twice per week throughout the September-May season program. Classroom instruction allows costs to remain low, while retaining a positive team-centered approach.
  • • Private Lessons: One-on-one instruction allows studio teachers to address specific concerns with each student.

Although additional fees apply to private instruction, students are able to advance at a faster rate. Several levels/costs of string instruction will be offered, based upon the experience of the studio teacher. Young students will be placed with UNA String Education Majors, as a training forum toward their degree.

Please contact cvolz@una.edu if you are interested in finding out more about this opportunity.
