The Clinch Academy

A Primary focus of the Clinch Quartet is sharing their experience and knowledge, as well as their enthusiasm for chamber music with Australia's music community. Through their Clinch Academy Program the Quartet reaches out to all music students, both secondary and tertiary, as well as all music professionals in Australia in need of feedback, sound boards, project development and ensemble playing.

In the spirit of Peter Clinch, the quartet is well aware that through community outreach, a healthy and inspiring music scene can be built and maintained. It is through inspiring young artists as well as collaborating with all their teachers and role models we can help guarantee a thriving Australian music scene.
