Mrs. Judy Koster

String applied studies at Benedictine College are your headquarters and launch pad for facility, technique, and versatile musicianship on violin, viola, cello, or bass. Our program meets you where you are and helps you take it higher. 

String studies at Benedictine exist to help you:

  • enhance your facility through the release of muscle tension
  • develop your technique through specific étude literature
  • explore important and exciting solo repertoire
  • attain historical/stylistic awareness of the music you play
  • tie together all areas of music instruction and relate them to your music-making
  • gain experience and grow in confidence in solo, chamber, and orchestral performance
  • pursue your instrument in ways that support your personal goals and future endeavors.

The string studio and the Department of Music promote a clear path to your success as a music educator and/or performer. As a new member of the Department, Mr. Carter is delighted with the caliber and the care of its faculty. In addition to weekly one-on-one instruction, the string student has the benefit of weekly recitals, chamber music opportunities, and Orchestra. From the comfortable facilities of Bishop Fink Hall  -  including practice rooms you actually want to practice in  -  to the versatile performance space of O’Malley-McAllister Auditorium, Benedictine College makes a great place for string musicians to call home.
