The ACMS trimester curriculum serves as a timeline in which to educate string players in the historical development of musical and technical advancements necessary to understand and perform today's chamber music. 


Through the exceptional mentoring of the Artaria String Quartet, ACMS alumni choose wide-ranging career paths, and those who choose music excel at major conservatories and in professional ensembles globally.

We Believe Musicians Need


String players flourish in a setting where they can meet others who share their passion for chamber music. ACMS is the place to start the journey to lifelong friendships.


Members of the Artaria String Quartet listen to the individual hopes and concerns of ACMS students, guiding their decision making and mentoring a successful outcome. ​


Participating in ACMS provides focus and direction to students who are exploring the possibility of a life in music or music in their life.

  • Performances 
  • Rehearsals
  • Accountability 
  • Communication 
  • Time Management
  • Individual Preparation
