Information about the ASTA National Conference

The American String Teachers Association (ASTA) National Conference is held yearly to benefit string teachers, students and performers. Attendees will learn the latest teaching techniques, and gain important information to bring back to their students. This conference not only benefits the person who attends but will benefit and bring long term results to your school district, studio, university and students. The ASTA conference is the premier place to enhance skills and knowledge of string related topics.

The ASTA Conference is the only place where you can get a dedicated, one-of-a-kind experience of more than 200 top-notch educational sessions, evening showcase performances by leading groups, a strings-only exhibit hall featuring products and service, social events and peer-to-peer networking, and performances by orchestras from around the country showcasing promising young talent.

ASTA does not assume responsibility for registration costs, transportation, lodging and meal costs associated with the conference. Costs are the responsibility of the conference attendee. 

We recognize that getting time off work to attend the conference may present a challenge for you. To help, here is a letter that you can print and use as an opportunity to initiate a conversation with your administration about the benefits of attending the ASTA conference.
