String Research Journal

Return: Teach Strings

The String Research Journal (SRJ) is an official peer-reviewed publication of original research related to string music teaching, learning, and performance. Its purpose is to encourage and improve scholarship and research within the string education profession and to disseminate the results of this work to the string and larger music teaching communities. It is different from our quarterly publication, American String Teacher.

Each year, the SRJ considers quantitative, qualitative, historical, and philosophical research relevant to string settings—from early childhood study to advanced private studio and string ensembles—for publication. It covers a wide range of topics, including various aspects of string pedagogy and teaching practices, effective rehearsals, performance, history, and listener perception.

Online access is free to ASTA members as a benefit of membership. Print issues are available through the ASTA Store. Non-members may purchase library subscriptions through SAGE Publishing.
