I enjoy sharing my love of music and learning with others. Below are some of my current musical projects:


Ongoing Projects:

Hudson Valley String Quartet

The Hudson Valley String Quartet performs concerts throughout the Mid-Hudson Valley and the Tri-State area. The Hudson Valley String Quartet enthusiastically performs at public and private events, fundraisers, and outreach concerts in support of their community.  An extension of their passion for music is teaching and preparing young musicians to perform, an important part of each members’ commitment to the future of music.

Mountain Laurel High School Chamber Ensemble

This is a chamber ensemble and chamber music program for intermediate and advanced high school musicians in New Paltz and the greater Mid-Hudson Valley. Lead by co-directors Marka Young and Mark Bernstein, the Ensemble’s goals are to develop orchestral and chamber music techniques and foster the musical language of each of its members. The Ensemble meets weekly for 10 weeks each semester at the Mountain Laurel Waldorf School. For more information, please contact Marka Young here on this website.
