6TH GRADE ORCHESTRA
Where it all begins!
We will start the year learning rhythm, pitches, music theory, and about our instruments. You will need to be sized for your instrument and we will have limited number of each instrument due to ensure we have a full string orchestra when we get back in the classroom. Be sure to have a first choice instrument and second choice!
7TH GRADE ORCHESTRA
Only the Best Year
We will start the year, IF have instruments at home, with finishing Essential Elements Book 1 and beginning Book 2. This group has made a lot of progress from where they started so we want to keep the momentum going as much as we can!
8TH GRADE ORCHESTRA
Last Stepping Stone before High School
We will start the year, IF have instruments at home, with finishing Essential Elements Book 2 and beginning Book 3. This group is lightyears beyond where they were beginning of the year last year! This year is your chance to take every opportunity; every chance to make yourself better before high school!
METHOD BOOKS FOR CLASS
Where the Fundamentals Begin
These are the method book series we use in class. Even if we cannot play in person at the moment, we can still individually perfect our abilities at home. School owned books can start falling apart over time; if you would like to purchase your own set of books to have and practice at home, do it if you can! Begin your journey with your method book at any of the following sites:
Any local music shop
The goal for each year is to have this book completed by the end of the year, as a class.
