It was great to see so many members and others online for ‘Improvisation for Strings’ by Rupert Guenther on October 4. Feedback has been positive and many thanks to Rupert for such an interesting and engaging session. We are planning more for the near future.

A reminder that the 2020 recommended hourly minimum rate for private studio teacher individual lessons by WAMTA is $90  for professionals, and $65 for students who teach.

We were very pleased to support WAYACHAMP recently, and also some Albany string events for students and teachers coming up soon.  If you would like support from AUSTA or have suggestions and contributions or would like more active involvement, please contact us either through the website or on AUSTA WA Facebook. A reminder about our other Facebook entity AUSTA WA Facebook Group – a group anyone can join, and post their own string-related content relevant to WA. Student requests for teachers seem to be on the rise lately – if you teach, consider having your profile up on the AUSTA website. The same benefit is also there for performers – another great benefit of AUSTA membership.

Best wishes,
Helen Tuckey, President AUSTA WA.


AUSTA WA Facebook Group

In addition to the AUSTA WA Facebook page, (which is largely for AUSTA events, member news and opportunities posted by AUSTA Social Media managers) we have started a page AUSTA WA Group which is for members of the group and others to post freely in regard to anything of interest to the string community.  All responsibility lies with those who post and is not the responsibility of AUSTA WA.
