Orchestra

Beginning Orchestra Description

Beginning Orchestra offers instruction on violin, viola, cello, and string bass instruments with a focus on the skills necessary for long-term success. Fundamentals stressed include proper posture and playing position, development of characteristic tone quality and training in music literacy. All instruments should be provided for the students by their parents if at all possible, but there are a limited supply of OCPS instruments if there are financial concerns. Please feel free to contact the director for recommendations regarding instrument purchase or rental suggestions. This class is ideal for those who were unable or only partially able to participate in an instrumental music class during previous school experiences. Beginning Orchestra class may also be ideal for those already with experience but who may need a review and reinforcement of music reading, playing fundamentals and technique that are vital for lasting musical development. Students of any grade level are welcome. This orchestra meets daily as for approximately forty five minutes. These groups will perform in the Winter and Spring Orchestra Concerts. No audition is required for placement in the Introductory Strings—all that is necessary is the desire and motivation to study a musical instrument!
