Hybrid: Beginning Orchestra: Gr. 5


Youth / Music & Theatre -
Youth Summer 2020 New

This class is open to all beginning string players going into fifth grade this fall. We will meet for 45 minutes Monday – Thursday for two weeks (8 lessons total). Violin, Viola, Cello, and Bass are the instruments offered. Your instrument, lesson book (Essential Elements for Strings: Book 1), and 3-ring binder are required for participation in the class.

An instrument tuner is highly recommended. Students can either bring their own phone/device with an app (insTuner Free) or use a Snark Chromatic All-Instrument Tuner.

This is a great way to get a head start on playing your instrument! Please contact the instructor if you need assistance in securing an instrument or for further information. (Kyrsten.Darby@edinaschools.org).
