2023 Spring Semester
Orchestra Program Details
Welcome to Orchestra – Violin Ensemble!
All levels welcome and no experience required!
Students will be grouped in violin classes of similar ages and skill level. This program is designed to keep music FUN, so students should expect to play many familiar songs throughout the 10+ week program, in addition to learning the fundamentals of rhythm, harmony and traditional note reading.
- 3rd, 4th and 5th graders may choose the violin. (We plan to expand to more instrument options this fall!)
Instruction begins on Wednesday, March 22, 2023 and runs through May 31, 2023, possibly culminating in a school concert!
Thirty minute small group lessons will be held each Wednesday at school during the school day.
There is no program fee required to participate. Funding for instruction is provided by generous grants and donations. Donations are gratefully appreciated and can be made out to the “Gault Street Elementary School”.
*Violins will be provided by the school for use during class. If a student wishes to practice at home throughout the week, individual violins can be rented directly by students for home practice through our instrument supplier ‘The Instrument Place’ (see below).
All music, books, and basic supplies will be provided to your child throughout the semester.
The following additional resources are also included with the program:
- Class Portal Page- weekly class recaps, practice suggestions, sheet music downloads, helpful video tutorials, and much more!
- Interactive video- get extra help by submitting a video for feedback from one of our teachers!
