ASTA Standards

FYI...Did you know that ASTA has developed standards for string teachers and orchestra directors who are working in K-12 programs? Led by Dr. Robert Gillespie, Ohio State University, the teaching standards task force has recently revised the standards, for use in helping to guide evaluations, inform administrators, and provide general insight into what ASTA believes are essential skills and qualities for excellence. We hope you find these useful!
