Books Needed for the Class

posted Aug 10, 2015, 1:45 PM by Susan Goudreau   [ updated Aug 25, 2015, 4:12 PM ]

There are 2 books that the 6th grade will use for Orchestra. They are Sound Innovations for String Orchestra, Book 1 and All for Strings Theory Workbook 1. Below are pictures of both which may be found at any music store. 

Don't forget your Orchestra Binder as well! It needs to be a black 1" to 1 1/2" three ring binder!           


Just want to let everyone know that the Sound Innovations book is also on iTunes! Of course, if you would like to have an extra copy on hand, this is a great way to do it! It already has the videos and music uploaded to the book! Check it out! 

First Week in Orchestra!

Students have now been scheduled into ORCHESTRA! Please be patient with me as I size all students. This will take me about 4 days in class to size each student. Once students have been sized they will receive a packet that contains an Orchestra Materials List, Rental Flyers from local music stores that were provided to the music department, and a questions list that you may ask each store. Please take a moment and look through this packet carefully. 

Students will need to have materials by Friday, August 21st. 

If you have questions, please contact me at PalmerPantherOrchestra@gmail.com. 

**The wire stand will need to stay home until I ask for students to bring it to school.**

What is the String Carnival?

The String Carnival is an event only offered to the 6th Grade students to try out any of the instruments intheorchestra. This will help those young 6th grade students decide which instrument that they like best! Parents are more than welcome to ask questions regarding the program to former students or Mrs. Goudreau! This is a fun and exciting event for all 6th grade students who are interested in playing the VIOLIN, VIOLA, CELLO, or DOUBLE BASS!!!!
