Beginning Orchestra is a strings ensemble designed to take students from ground zero to playing a few simple songs in their 1st year of study. Fiddle tunes and a variety of music games are used to teach basic stringed technique, music reading and music theory using the Suzuki approach.
This year, Beginning Orchestra will join in 2 concerts (fall and spring) and may have other possible performance opportunities during the season.
This ensemble requires a minimum of 10 students. Each student must be at least 8 years old.
Rehearsal: This ensemble will meet Thursday evenings from 4:30-6:00pm, during Training Orchestra. Each session includes a 15-minute break for snacks and social interaction
