Welcome to orchestra!
In orcehstra your child will learn to play the violin, viola, cello or bass. The program begins in 4th grade and continues on through 6th. Our goal is to give students a foundation in musical skills and technique that will serve them well as they continue on in Jr. High and beyond. Learning to play a musical instrumnet also helps to teach students responsibility. Working in a group environment gives them opportunities to advance in teamwork and leadership skills.
My professional background
