Hi: Of the eight “Ivy League” schools (Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, Princeton University, the University of Pennsylvania, and Yale University), which—if any—are more likely to be favorable for a PhD application in string pedagogy. [Thesis something like: A Comparison of String Pedagogies: Shinichi Suzuki, Carl Flesch, Leopold Auer]

And are there other schools where a thesis of this type might be encouraged?

When my daughter was looking for a school with a string pedagogy program, the woman who was her thesis advisor for her M.M. suggested IU in Bloomington and Northwestern in Chicago. I don’t know if any of the Ivys would have such a program. I believe both IU and Northwestern offer a PhD.
