The Tetra Experience                                 

In Summer 2017, we are offering TWO workshops! June 15-24th in Tempe and July 13-22rd in Scottsdale.

Both 2017 summer workshops are currently full and applications are now closed. Please email us at if you would like to be put on a waiting list.        

The mission of our workshop is to enrich the musical development of string players through studying the art of chamber music.  Each student is placed in an ensemble and will participate in daily rehearsals and coachings with members of the Tetra String Quartet and Taylor Morris. Additionally, students will explore fiddling and improvisation to learn how to think and play 'outside the box.' This workshop provides a sense of community for musicians, teaching students how to function as a group, communicate effectively, and prepare a musical work for performance.
