All students will be responsible for providing an appropriate instrument and accessories. (Enrolled students will receive more details in the Orchestra Handbook)

 

Beginning Level 2 (Grades 3-4):

This class is designed as a continuation of Beginning Level 1. Students will continue to refine posture, build on technique skills, while transitioning into music reading and becoming more independent musicians.
