The fifth and sixth grade students who have had previous periods of instrumental training are promoted into this string orchestra, as well as their lesson during the week. In this ensemble we are focusing on performance skills and other musical ideas such as theory, instrumental technique, ensemble blending, understanding roles in an ensemble and various aspects of being a string musician.
String students will still be pulled from class once a week for lessons. The Fifth and Sixth Grade String Orchestra will perform twice a year. Once in December and again in the spring with the 3rd and 4th grade students. This club will help prepare students for the middle school ensemble and future musical experiences!
If students are going to partake in this ensemble, they must be present for the two performances of the year.
