ASTA Virtual Chapter Chats with String Experts


A new program for state chapters in honor of ASTA’s 75th anniversary

ASTA is excited to celebrate 75 years of professional training and support for string educators throughout the country. One of the activities created by the ASTA 75th Anniversary Task Force is a new program of monthly virtual chats facilitated by ASTA state chapters for the 2021–2022 school year.

The goal is to provide free resources for ASTA members in honor of our 75th anniversary. These Zoom chats will feature short presentations by experts in various areas of string education, followed by a discussion and Q&A. 

Learn more about how to offer these virtual chats to your chapter members.
