The MNSOTA Board is pleased to continue our Music Mentor Program, connecting experienced mentors with string educators in the state, both in classrooms and private studios. Our mentorship coordinator will connect a mentee with a mentor, contact the mentoring partners throughout the year, and assist with any questions or logistics.

Apply any time; applications will be considered at each MNSOTA Board meeting, usually held in September, November, January, April and June each year. Mentors and mentees will be notified of approval/non-approval during the week following each board meeting.

Questions? Contact our mentorship coordinator.

Criteria for Mentees
• Mentee must be a current ASTA member (can join at time of application)
• Mentee must define a specific need or challenge

• Preference may be given to non-string players teaching strings
• Preference may be given to teachers in the first 5 years of their career, but experienced teachers with a specific articulated growth goal are also encouraged to apply.

Thanks for submitting!
