At the core of ACMS are weekly chamber music coachings with members of the Artaria String Quartet. These sessions comprise advanced study and preparation of Classical, Romantic/Nationalist, and Modern Era masterpieces with attention to BIPOC composers. The focus is on individual responsibility to the musical and technical integrity of each piece, positive group dynamics, and effective communication. 


Annual Masterclasses with visiting international musicians, including members of the Takács, Pacifica, Miró, Borromeo, Parker, St. Lawrence Quartets, and distinguished members of the Guarneri Quartet, serve as additional inspiration for aspiring chamber musicians.


Multiple performance events are provided each year as well as opportunities to compete regionally and nationally. ACMS prizewinning quartets have been invited to appear on Minnesota Public Radio and APM's “From the Top”.
