ESTA UK is dedicated to the needs of string teachers across the UK and to improving the quality of string teaching at every level, from toddler to conservatoire. 

We provide support and professional development through our website and our magazines, Arco and Jesta, and by organising events across the country throughout the year. 
We offer generous financial benefits to members, including insurance and legal cover, funding to put on local events and discounts to ESTA-organised seminars.
We believe in the possibility for music to change lives; that every child has the right to learn music; and that as teachers we are responsible for the future generations of musicians and music lovers.
NEW: ESTA is demonstrating its commitment to the future of string teaching and playing in the UK by setting up the country’s first accredited PG Cert. (String Teaching) course and qualification, starting in May 2017. Find out more and enrol here
ESTA and Saffron Hall are joining forces with Nicola Benedetti on 6 and 7 May to present a weekend of activities and events devoted to the teaching and learning of stringed instruments. For more information click HERE
