American String Teacher

ASTA is excited to announce its partnership with SAGE Publishing to produce American String Teacher and the String Research Journal. SAGE is a leading international provider of innovative, high-quality content. The partnership with SAGE will bring better online access, including a robust search function; more visibility in the string community; and a streamlined submission process for authors.

Every quarter, our award-winning, peer-reviewed journal keeps members up to date on the string profession. The journal provides feature articles, teaching tips, and music reviews, as well as association and industry news.

"We look forward to working with SAGE Publishing to expand the reach and accessibility of our journals, allowing us to foster knowledge and resources that support string teachers, performers, students, and school orchestra programs. SAGE has an excellent reputation in education publishing. We are confident this partnership will benefit ASTA, our members, and the string community." - Monika Schulz, CAE, ASTA Chief Executive Officer
