September 2017: Wow, can you believe it's already fall? That means it's time to start making some music together again!

We are starting orchestra small group lessons! Look for an email or on the Orchestra Schedule page to know your student's orchestra day. I'm so excited to see all of my new students and continuing students!!

Especially beginner students: PLEASE make sure you have an instrument! If you set up a rental, it should be at school now. If you purchased, picked up an instrument, or just have one at home, please drop it off at the orchestra room so I can make sure it's ready to go for the year. 

Check that you have everything: Rosin block, cleaning rag, bow, Essential Elements 2000 Book 1 for your instrument (4th and 5th grade). Violin/viola also needs a shoulder sponge, Cello/bass also needs a rock stop.


June 2017: Check out the new Summer Fun page for great ideas and videos to check out over the summer!

Students starting 4th grade (or beginner 5th graders) got to hear about orchestra this last April during music class- check out our Orchestra Video to hear and see each of the instruments! Please email me at if you're thinking about a last-minute registration for orchestra.
