ACMS masterclasses have been presented by the critically acclaimed Artaria String Quartet, as well as by the Takacs, Miro, Pacifica, Brentano, St. Lawrence, Cavani, Borromeo, Parker, Miami and Catalyst String Quartets. Renowned chamber musicians Roberto Diaz (President of the Curtis Institute) and Arnold Steinhardt (Guarneri Quartet) have also made a profound impact in their sessions with ACMS students.

Attendance at masterclasses is important to the success of those performing and those actively listening to their peers. Families, friends, and teachers are especially invited to come and share in the excitement of the creative learning process.

All masterclasses are free for ACMS students, guests, and the general public.
