CMS-NJ is an organization comprised of young professional musicians. Throughout the year, we will provide the community with chamber music concerts as well as partnering with public schools and other non-profits. Part of our educational outreach will be introduce and promote chamber music to students of all ages with various clinics, master classes, and recitals.


In most college music programs students have an opportunity to play in chamber ensembles.  This intimate setting for learning and making music teaches students to be acutely aware of certain fundamentals of musicianship.  As an educational tool, chamber music creates an excellent balance between solo playing and large ensemble.  As in large ensembles, students get the benefit of playing with others and being required to blend, tune, and play in time with like instruments.  With chamber music, students get the added benefit of "one on a part" playing, which requires them to build the confidence necessary for such playing.

CMS-NJ offers a variety of events for your school's instrumental music program.  Concerts, masterclasses, lectures, and residencies are all offered as part of our educational outreach. 

For questions, fees, and any other information, feel free to contact our Director of Educational Outreach, Jeffrey Smith at
