ASTA provides resources across the string community from budding student teachers to artist-status performers.

Update: COVID-19

ASTA, like the general public, is concerned about the growing spread of the coronavirus and its impact on our communities, classes, and students. We are committed to sharing vital information and updates with the string music education community through online channels. We have gathered some resources to help you stay informed on this rapidly evolving situation. You can count on ASTA to share new information and resources as they become available.
