Welcome to ESTA (UK)

promoting excellence in string teaching


Congratulations to all those who have graduated from the ESTA Postgraduate Certificate course.

After completing the inaugural course ESTA (UK) is now set to provide this useful accredited qualification to many more teachers over the coming years. For full information about all the courses offered by ESTA (UK) please visit our dedicated ESTA Education website.

We are delighted to announce that in July 2018 violinist Nicola Benedetti became the new President of ESTA (UK).

Nicola officially succeeded David Le Page, today, and was formally welcomed by members at an ESTA event in Leeds in July.

Nicola Benedetti writes, “I am delighted to become the next ESTA UK President and to continue the excellent work that David has undertaken during his tenure. Exceptional teaching from dedicated music teachers takes place all over the UK and I believe it is our responsibility to support them. ESTA is brilliant at bringing teachers together to discuss best practices and to share ideas. I very much look forward to meeting more of them from across the UK as ESTA UK’s President.”
