Moxie Strings

Experience some of the world’s best- known instruments through an electric, innovative lens! With a newly-invented electric cello and a contemporary 5-string violin, the Moxie Strings perform a genre-blurring blend of ear-catching, mainstream melodies and foot-stomping, rock-influenced rhythms (many of which they compose themselves). 

Soon after forming in 2007, The Moxie Strings were inspired not only to perform, but also to teach. Having made the exploratory journey from classical music to a world of eclecticism and music creativity, the band has now dedicated their careers to helping young musicians make this life-changing and transformative transition. Moxie clinics focus on musical self-discovery and the importance of incorporating socially and culturally relevant genres of music in the music classroom.

 

They have taught clinics in over 200 schools throughout the US, and also present on their research and methodologies to teachers at many music education professional development conferences. During most clinics, The Moxie Strings perform for students on electric instruments, teach music by ear, and introduce non-classical playing styles. The group has 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. 

Current Magazine insists that “the future of music could not be in better hands.”
