Undergraduate string players at Duke study with members of the Ciompi Quartet as part of their curriculum. Students of all levels reach toward their full potential under the guidance of their teacher-mentors. Along with individual lessons, Ciompi members hold frequent class recitals and workshops for all to participate in; as they progress in ability, students can choose to give full-length recitals as well. Chamber music classes organized by quartet members each semester are also popular and open to all interested students. The Quartet members regularly invite colleagues and musical luminaries to give master classes. Being a string player at Duke means choosing from innumerable opportunities that offer the chance to stretch one’s abilities to new heights; time and ambition are the only limitations!
