Our Philosophy
At Basically Quartets, there are only two prerequisites: a passion for chamber music and a love of learning. If you are an adult amateur string player interested in improving your skills and learning more about the nuts and bolts of chamber music playing, Basically Quartets is for you.  We hope time spent at Basically Quartets will:

  • immerse you in music making and learning, away from the demands of day-to-day life;
  • develop your chamber music skills and allow you to get more enjoyment out of your group music making;
  • fill in background knowledge so that you will have a better understanding and appreciation of the chamber music you listen to and play;
  • give you an opportunity to improve your instrumental skills;
  • allow you to meet, mingle and learn from other like-minded musicians;
  • give you a musical "shot in the arm" of inspiration, motivation and new ideas to help you enjoy and progress in your music making in the coming year, and most importantly;
  • be enjoyable!

  Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty.
Anyone who keeps learning stays young. 
- Henry Ford
