November 21, 2004 at 02:24 AM · I'm pretty sure Dancheckno does Encore in Ohio..

November 21, 2004 at 05:16 AM · Jude I think Steinhardt actually performs and teaches at another festival up in Vermont, I forgot the name.

November 21, 2004 at 05:23 AM · you're probably right. i really don't know.

vermont's quite the place in the summers!

November 21, 2004 at 09:20 PM · Hi,

I know that Victor Danchenko teaches at Encore during the summer and at the Niagara International Music Festival in Canada also.

As for the others, I have no clue. Sorry...

January 8, 2005 at 02:24 AM · Mr. Danchenko also teaches at Keshet Eilon in Israel some years.

January 9, 2005 at 10:23 PM · It occurs to me that Steinhardt definitely teaches at the Steinhardt School, a quartet training program.

January 13, 2005 at 12:17 AM · Joe Silverstein teaches at Sarasota Music Festival in Florida during June.

January 13, 2005 at 02:28 AM · to respond to your answer, Pamela Frank is quite busy every summer. Regarding Summer 2005, she will be teaching at Sarasota, Music at Menlo (David Finckel and Wu Han's summer camp), Ravinia, Tanglewood, Kneisel.

January 15, 2005 at 08:50 PM · Each teacher mentioned is good but not necessarily good for you. Just because a teacher has a reputation for being a good teacher does not mean that you will work well under them. It's very important to get one or two lessons with a potential teacher before deciding on him or her.

Discover which teacher you get along with best, which teacher you respect the most...and not just on a musical level as I believe it is very important to respect them as a person too. If they don't treat you right, then they don't deserve your respect or your money.
