Do you want to do a deep dive on a specific, technical aspect of one of the quartets with Rachel? Or do you want to explore a sense of breathing while playing your instrument with Paula? Or perhaps you’re a cellist and you just want to talk about the last movement of Opus 132 with Josh! Or maybe you’re not a player at all, and you’re curious…you get to decide how to spend the time.

None of these options right for you? Get in touch at and we’ll figure out something that’s right for you!
