      4th Grade Elementary Orchestra

    Welcome to our orchestra page! We are excited to offer beginner orchestra classes to 4th grade students this fall!

    Being an orchestra member is a great way to meet other kids, to be part of something greater than everyday life, and to come out of years of school able to play an instrument and play it well. We support each other and help each other, and we work together to become better players, having a good time along the way.

    Students do not need any prior knowledge of instruments or playing experience in order to be in orchestra. Our classes are beginner lessons and students learn all the fundamentals needed to make music with their instrument in this first year. Those who are interested in joining 4th grade orchestra should  register for our Summer Orchestra Camp (Optional) and class sessions for the 2019-2020 school year.

    Students, we can promise that if you are willing to put a little effort into good practice, you will gain rewards beyond what your life would be without orchestra. You will make good friends, have fun, and with practice, make great gains in your musical abilities, so consider joining orchestra this year.

    We look forward to having you in our class!
