Orchestra is offered to 4th and 5th grades. There is beginning orchestra and intermediate orchestra. Each one meets twice a week. Parents must provide the instrument and method book. Orchestra gives students the opportunity to learn either the violin, viola, or the cello. They will learn how to read music and the proper technique to play these instruments. This is a great way for students to increase their knowledge and skill level in music! They will also be jump-starting their way into something they can continue all the way through middle and high school! It also gives them a chance to perform in front of an audience and alongside others. They will grow musically, socially, and gain confidence in what they’re doing!! The orchestra will perform at two concerts throughout the year.
