    Educational Outreach: Strings Can! with The Moxie Strings

The Moxie Strings are dedicated educators and have spent the last 10 years inspiring, empowering, and motivating students through music. Diana and Alison offer enrichment workshops for musicians of all ages, perform and also present on their research and methodologies to teachers at music education conferences. During most clinics, The Moxie Strings perform for students on electric instruments, teach music by ear, and introduce non-classical playing styles. They have researched and created an innovative sequence of activities designed to introduce improvisation to classically trained musicians, which they employ at every clinic. The Moxie Strings deliver their message in a fun, accessible way, and stand before students as the illustration of the many opportunities that music holds.

The Moxie Strings have curriculums designed for all age groups, and can vary in length and content. Clinics often include, but are not limited to: Learning by ear Improvisation Rock, Blues or Fiddle Styles Arranging An Evening Concert Recruitment/Retention Concerts Tune-writing Music Theory A Moxie Strings performance Orchestral Arrangements Composition FUN
