Introduction to Orchestra
Grades 9, 10, 11, 12
This is an entry-level instrumental music class. This course is designed to teach students who have little to no previous musical training how to read music and play an orchestral string instrument, such as violin, viola, cello or double bass. Students learn basic music theory, musical terms and concepts, proper playing technique, and individual and ensemble performance skills. The students perform in two required performances throughout the year. This course helps prepare students for joining Orchestra.
