The Music Education Project

Pacific University's Music Education Project provides after-school music programs that offer high-quality, yet affordable, instruction to students ages 5 to 18.

Programs include string instruments (violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar), winds instruments (flutes, oboes, clarinets, and bassoons), brass instruments (trumpets, French Horn, trombone, and tuba), and percussion instruments (drums, timpani, and all other percussion instruments).

Students receive instruction in small and large ensembles as well as in private lessons. The Music Education Project also offers instruction in music theory and solfegio, music appreciation, and chamber ensembles. Teachers in the program are trained music education undergraduate students who work under the close supervision of highly-qualified and experienced music faculty.
