ASTA Instrument Outreach

The American String Teachers Association’s instrument outreach initiatives are generously supported by ASTA members CodaBow International, Ltd., Winona, Minnesota, and Potter’s Violins, Bethesda, Maryland.  In recent years ASTA and our partners have awarded more than 60 new instruments to talented students through our Potter’s Violins Instrument Awards, and more than $50,000 worth of CodaBows to deserving teaching programs throughout the country through CodaBows for America.

CodaBows for America

CodaBows for America advances the welfare of public and private music programs through the donation of bows to deserving programs in good standing. Learn how your your school could benefit from a gift of CodaBows.
