The Foundation for the Advancement of String Education was created with the hopes and dreams of not only inspiring students and teachers to strive for excellence, but also to provide the educational and financial support to help them reach their goals.
Gestalt-driven, flexible, compact – the teaching strategies of the Bornoff Approach help develop thinking musicians from the earliest ages and can be easily integrated with existing methods and materials, enabling teachers to more effectively use diminishing instruction time. The Bornoff Approach to string teaching encourages creativity and flexibility from teachers and students alike.

With a tax-deductible gift to FASE, you will help support excellence in teaching and learning, transforming lives of musicians and their communities. All support is important – from purchasing instruments, music stands and sheet music for classes, scholarships for student private lessons or youth orchestra tuition, to professional development for instructors – donations of all sizes further the mission of FASE!
As with any other method, the Bornoff approach and its materials are best understood through training and practical experience, and Bornoff teacher-trainers are available for seminars, workshops and individual consulting. Our workshops provide the opportunity for teachers of all levels to explore Bornoff philosophy in a practical setting. Ample hands-on experience helps participants integrate and consolidate bowing and fingering skills within the Bornoff approach. The end result is teacher confidence and flexibility to adapt and sequence the materials to best suit the instructional needs in each class session.
