String area changes


Exciting things are happening!

The School of Music at the University of Louisville continues to have a strong and vibrant presence in our community.  For example, recent developments in our String area include our very successful inaugural String Summit, during which we hosted middle and high school students for an exciting week of music-making activities in June.  Our String Preparatory Center provides wonderful opportunities for precollegiate students in traditional and Suzuki teaching models, and we are now accepting students for lessons. Those wishing to register for lessons can do so by emailing Anna Oldham at Finally, we are thrilled to welcome to UofL Dr. Geoffrey Herd, the newest addition to our String faculty. Dr. Herd brings a wealth of experience and robust achievements to our lauded artist faculty. Already in his first year, he is attracting students to our campus from as far away as China and Thailand. In addition to his robust collegiate studio, Dr. Herd will maintain a small studio of pre-college students through the String Preparatory Center. Please stay tuned as we continue to develop and extend our reach into the community with the gift of music.
