4th Grade Orchestra

The 4th Grade Orchestra is directed by Rob Swinney and Lee Starovich. Class meets at Pleasant Valley Jr. High School at 7:30 a.m. on Monday and Wednesday mornings for orchestra rehearsals. Students may ride the Jr. High bus from their home bus stop or their parents may bring them to the Jr. High School; to learn more about when/where the Junior High bus comes, please contact bus information (563) 332-4949. Activity buses transport students back to their home elementary school after orchestra class.

Please report rehearsal absences by sending an email to your child’s rehearsal teacher. Mr. Swinney teaches Bridgeview, Cody, and Hopewell students in the band room, and Mr. Starovich teaches Riverdale Heights and Pleasant View students in the orchestra room.

4th Grade Orchestra students also receive a 15 minute individual or small group lesson during the school day once a week in addition to orchestra classes. Please check the Lesson Schedule Page to check to see what day/time they have lessons, and make sure that they bring their instrument (violins and violas) as well as music (all instruments) to school on the lesson day. This is especially important when the lesson day does not fall on rehearsal days (Mondays and Wednesdays).

Feel free to contact us with any questions!
