The strings program at Ohio State has been a tremendously supportive community that reaffirms my love to learn and perform music. — John Li
The Ohio State strings program transformed my graduate experience by allowing me to study cello alongside music theory and cognition, encouraging me to integrate the two fields, and inspiring me to pursue an interdisciplinary, curiosity-driven approach to music as both a performer and researcher. — Caitlyn Trevor (pictured in the motion sensor lab)
