Teaching Artistry: An Interview with Almita Vamos



The Academy video clip is an exchange between Academy Director, James Setapen, and acclaimed violin faculty member, Almita Vamos, who has taught and mentored almost 100 violin students in the Academy since its inception in 2006. Today, many of those talents attend the nation's top conservatories.

The Music Institute of Chicago is proud of its distinguished artist faculty members, who offer students instruction equal to that anywhere in the world. Students accepted in the Academy must study solely with a member of the Music Institute of Chicago faculty. Today, the Academy is proud to offer students 15 preeminent private lesson string teachers, and a dozen more who coach the Academy's award winning chamber ensembles.
