Our Mission

We wish to help all players, all ages, all skill levels. Our faculty enjoys coaching students of every level and we have the expertise to work with all musicians: from 8 year olds to semi-professionals. We enjoy encouraging youngsters in their first adventures in chamber music and are pleased that we have performers return year after year.
