Become a Member

Keep yourself and your students inspired. We are always looking for a better way to correct a faulty bow hand or more meaningful language to communicate how to produce a beautiful sound.

An ASTA membership provides you with a community of string players and teachers and a bountiful resource of pedagogical knowledge.
