The Oregon Chapter of the American String Teachers Association (OR-ASTA) was founded to promote string playing in the state of Oregon and to serve Oregon's members of the American String Teachers Association. Its officers are elected every two years by a vote of the membership.
ASTA, founded more than 60 years ago, is a membership organization for string
and orchestra teachers and players, helping them to develop and refine their
careers. ASTA's members range from budding student teachers to artist-
status performers. The organization provides a vast array of services,
including instrument insurance, an award-winning scholarly journal,
discounts on publications and resources, annual professional
development opportunities, and access to collegial network
of colleagues throughout the string profession.
