In existence for more than 25 years the workshop is located in beautiful Maplewood New Jersey. There are two sessions per academic year each composed of 4 Saturday afternoons spaced about a month apart. In the fall and the spring the directors group the players by skill levels to work on their selected pieces. Of course preformed groups are always more then welcome. Each group is coached by professional musicians for half of the time on each day and works on its own for the remainder. There is a break in the middle of the afternoon for refreshments and hobnobbing. At the end of each afternoon there is a half-hour presentation of one kind or another geared to be of interest to the participants, perhaps a performance with professionals or a demonstration by an instrument builder or a brief lecture by a music historian. At the final workshop of each session there is an opportunity for the groups to perform their pieces.
