The acclaimed teacher and founding member of the Guarneri String Quartet will join the faculty of the USC Thornton School of Music in fall 2014. His addition further strengthens the school’s world class Strings faculty.
“We are thrilled to welcome Michael Tree to our Strings faculty,” said Robert Cutietta, Dean of the USC Thornton School of Music. “He will join two first-rate viola instructors in Karen Dreyfus and Che-Yen Chen. Both are former students of Michael, and the combined artistic excellence of the three is of the highest order.”
