To provide a rich environment of musical and personal collaboration that encourages creativity, promotes leadership skills, and passes the great traditions of chamber music on to the next generation.
Young Musicians Need
Although our primary focus is on the art and understanding of chamber music, young players also need a place to meet others that share a similar interest in chamber music. ACMS is the guiding hand behind a collection of individuals with a shared interest in the study and performance of chamber music.
Young ACMS participants receive personal attention each week in addition to music instruction. Mentoring by Artaria members adds great value to the program by being an additional set of ears to listen and evaluate the hopes and dreams of each person. Additional mentoring occurs when ACMS alumni return each year from college and/or summer music programs across the country with stories and ideas to share with others.
The Artaria Chamber Music School provides is a center for advanced music study, understanding, appreciation, and performance. It gives purpose and focus to young musicians exploring the possibility of a life in and around music.
