An engaging presentation for children in grades K-6 by Turtle Island Quartet draws comparisons between a quartet and a family to help students understand how a string quartet functions and thrives. “The Art of the Groove” gives children a personal reference point for understanding the dynamics that drive musical groups.

Children are challenged to discern the many different musical styles the quartet presents, and young instrumentalists are presented with a new model of what is possible to achieve on string instruments. A question-and-answer period follows the rousing rock and roll finish.
