Beginning Band/Beginning Orchestra – 9:00–9:50 am
Come and learn a new instrument with us! Beginning band and orchestra are two separate classes and are for all students interested in starting a new instrument, or learning a secondary instrument. We will start with how to open the case and put the instrument together, learn basic techniques and some simple songs. The books/music will be supplied. You only need to have a working instrument. Check out local music stores to rent an instrument. If you are learning a second instrument, please get in touch with Mrs. Cavaliere for band and Mrs. Bock for orchestra, so we can coordinate trying a new instrument with you.
Smorgasbord Band and Orchestra Fun! 10:00 - 10:50
Come and have fun playing music games, learning about composing/improv, learning about music and sound effects in movies, and other fun music activities! This class is after the beginning classes and before the advanced classes so no matter which classes your child is interested in taking, they can stay or come prior to their class.
Advanced Band/Advanced Orchestra – 11:00– 11:50 am
Come and learn pop, rock, and movie music with us! These sessions are for all students that have played their instrument for at least one full year.
If I want to learn a new instrument but already have experience with a different instrument, can I participate in both the beginning and advanced classes? Absolutely!
Do I need to bring my own books? No. All materials will be provided.
Who do I contact if I have questions? Mrs. Bock, Mrs. Cavaliere, Mrs. Hann in the Chatfield area or Mrs. Welch in the Dakota area
