• Welcome to Orchestra!

    Orchestra is a performance-based course for violin, viola, cello and bass. During this course, students will play a variety of level-appropriate repertoire, develop music reading and theory skills, and learn and expand upon instrumental skills and techniques. Music listening and music appreciation will be included. 

    - Intermediate/Beginning Orchestra is for students who have none up to two years experience on their instrument. Due to the pandemic, for the 2021-2022 school year, students will be able to join this course as a beginner. Students who had 1/2 a year of instrumental instruction in 4th grade will also be able to join. 

    - Advanced Orchestra is a two-year course for 7th and 8th graders. 


    Please email me if you have any questions about Orchestra course descriptions or placement! I look forward to meeting your student next school year!
