American String Teachers Association Student Chapter
We believe playing a string instrument can change a life. Founded in 1946, the American String
Teachers Association exists to help string and orchestra teachers and players. Our
members range from budding student teachers to artist-status performers. We provide
a vast array of services including our National Orchestra Festival, an award-winning
scholarly journal, job postings, local and national events, and access to a vibrant
and sharing string community.
The ASTA Student Chapter at Texas Tech University was established in Fall 2017. The
chapter is open to all TTU students interested in strings. The chapter is a recognized
TTU Student Organization and participates in campus, college, and school events. Membership
also provides service to our local school string programs.
