Seltzer Studio offers small chamber music classes, recitals, and competition opportunities for students of all levels and abilities.

Why add Chamber Music?

Chamber Music:

  • Exposes students to a wide variety of literature
  • Motivates students who have become bored with solo only repertoire
  • Advances performance skills
  • Encourages creativity
  • Develops ensemble skills including group intonation and following or leading other musicians
  • Provides new concert performance opportunities
  • Cultivates sight reading skills in a supportive environment


-Interested students are grouped with others of similar level into string duos, trios, and quartets.

-Students meet for 10 weekend classes, about 2x a month, from September through February.
