Itet - John Noble's Quartet Program

John Noble’s Quartet Program is an exciting and innovative method of training young musicians in the art of chamber music. The program harnesses online technology to deliver tailored music programs to students of regional & rural Victoria. Each quartet receives monthly mentoring sessions with John Noble and other gifted musicians. They are supported by their local community, schools and government. This partnership provides a rehearsal space with all of the technical support to deliver inspirational coaching via Skype. Performance opportunities are provided at local civic and community events allowing the students to gain in confidence and potential. This program not only provides young people in remote locations the opportunity to collaborate with like-minded musicians, but an opportunity to socialize and connect within their communities. All quartets are linked to professional ensembles from around Australia, affording them unique mentoring experiences. Once a year all quartets come together and perform alongside their professional mentors in a full string orchestra. We currently have six quartets across Victoria. This will grow to ten by 2018. Exciting opportunities for growth nationally and internationally will occur in 2019.
