How to Get an Instrument & Supplies:

Welcome to 5th Grade Orchestra!


Fifth grade students are given the exciting opportunity to learn how to play a stringed instrument—violin, viola, or cello. They will build on their general music knowledge by learning to read music and advanced rhythms. When students join the Liberty Public Schools orchestra program at the start of their fifth grade year, they benefit from our beginner-friendly instruction and commitment to the LPS tradition of excellence.  They are also given opportunities to show off their new skills during several performances throughout the year!
