    I absolutely love this quartet, however it was far beyond the level of my high school students. I think this would be great to pull out for a high school quartet that actually enjoys getting together to play through music on their own for fun. It would take time, but...

    with the right work ethic it would be awesome for a high achieving high school group. It also impresses judges!
