NC ASTA is an active and growing state chapter of the American String Teachers Association. We enrich string education in North Carolina through ASTACAP, Solo Competitions, Scholarship Opportunities, and Professional Development Workshops.
The North Carolina Chapter of the American String Teachers Association enriches lives through universal access to excellent string teaching and playing. We pursue this mission through an open sharing of ideas, benefits, services, and activities responsive to the musical needs of all members and their students. This is accomplished by the development of strong and active chapter leadership, enhancement of the image and visibility of string teaching and study, advocacy for string education through communication and cooperation with other music advocacy organizations, and fostering an inclusive community of string teachers, players, and their students. We fulfill this mission by embracing and inspiring our membership and by welcoming, empowering and serving their string related aspirations.
