ASTA collegiate student chapters provide valuable opportunities for leadership, career development, and lasting relationships between peers and mentors. They make our community stronger and build the future of the string profession. If your school already has a chapter, we encourage you to become an active member. If your school does not have a chapter, we invite you to establish one. ASTA can help you and your peers achieve your goals and provide a strong, unified voice for string music education and performance.
