The University of Windsor Lab School: Strings is a centre and laboratory for research. Supported by SSHRC funding, the work of the lab focuses on how students learn and explore the implications of music study on our communities and is a collaborative endeavor that engages faculty, undergraduate and graduate students in the pursuit of this critical work. Our research assesses how string education may fulfill social benefits, well-being, cultural identification, integration, and belonging within the Canadian context. In the process of this research, we will establish innovative pedagogies and skills in string performance while building towards a continued understanding of how music can play a role in our politics, society and culture.
