String Division

 

 

The String Division at the UMD School of Music offers degree programs at the bachelor's, master's and doctoral levels. The String faculty comprises world-class performers and instructors, including some of today's leading chamber music specialists, members of the National Symphony Orchestra, and Baltimore Symphony Orchestra

The String Division is proud to present the third season of its Masterful Strings series, an exciting line-up of world-renowned players and teachers who come to the UMD campus for performances, masterclasses and residencies. See the fall 2017 guests here

Performance degrees are offered at all levels for violin, viola, cello, double bass and harp. Introductory courses are offered in classical guitar, but no degree program is offered.
