featured electives

Beginner Orchestra Boot Camp (Grades 5 and 6)
This class is designed to introduce the fundamentals of string playing (violin, viola, cello, and string bass) to the student with no prior experience! Participants will be taught proper care and handling of the instrument, a healthy playing position, and playing songs by rote. Violin, viola, and cello students will need their instruments. Basses will be provided. This is the perfect opportunity for those musicians who have chosen strings as their sixth grade elective!
