Strings at UNO
The cornerstone of UNO’s String Program is studio instruction. Emphasis is placed on technique; the development of musicality; exposure to standard solo, chamber, and orchestral repertoire; and learning how to play with efficiency and ease. The string faculty have a diverse array of national and international teaching and performing experience.
Undergraduate (B.M. Performance/Education; B.A. Music Studies)
String students should perform two pieces/movements of contrasting style.
Graduate (M.M. Performance)
Prospective graduate students should perform a program comprised of the following: 1) one movement of a concerto, 2) one movement of a sonata, and 3) one movement of solo Bach.
