Recently your child attended a concert showcasing all of the musical opportunities available to them in string orchestra and band.
The four string orchestra instruments are:
Violin, Viola Cello, Bass
The Band Instruments
Flute, Clarinet, Alto Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone
Baritone and Tuba– These are low brass instruments. Students will often start on Trumpet or Trombone and switch to these instruments.
Percussion – Students must play one of the instruments above first in order to play percussion. They must audition to show competent rhythm and note reading skills.
Why Join the Band or Orchestra?
Who Can Join?
Students entering the 6th grade for the 2016-2017 school year who have the desire to learn how to make music. No advance musical training is required. The students will start from the very beginning learning how to hold the instrument and learning how to read music.
How Do I Find an Instrument?
SHAR Music, Marshall Music and Quinlin & Fabish offer programs where you can pay a small monthly fee to rent an instrument. Money that you put in rental fees will go toward the purchase of any instrument that they sell. These rental programs include maintenance and upkeep on the instrument being rented. If finances are an issue, we will work something out. We have several school instruments available for use.
Please email Mrs. Zeckner with your interest and she will get you further information. firstname.lastname@example.org
