About ESTA UK
ESTA (European String Teachers Association) is a non-governmental organisation founded in 1972 in order to promote the highest standards in teaching and to enable the sharing of ideas among string teachers and players of all distinctions throughout Europe.
In the UK branch 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 membership benefits as listed opposite, and support our members with personalised help and advice.
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.
