Regarded as one of the nation's premiere chamber music coaching programs, the Artaria Chamber Music School provides exceptional musical training, leadership skills, and major performing opportunities for young string players.

Founded in 2002 this exceptional program has trained over three hundred young Minnesota musicians to appreciate, interpret, and present the great classical chamber music masterpieces. We foster creativity, leadership, tradition, and excellence in our weekly coaching program and develop accountability and cooperation among members.

ACMS students are prizewinners in national competitions and have been featured on From the Top. They are prominent members of all the Twin Cities youth music programs and our Alumni can be found in major conservatories and professional ensembles around the country.
