Welcome to Orchestra!

I am excited to have your child in orchestra class at Youree this year.  Below is a list of things he/she will need, together with other important information.  Please feel free to contact me at the email/phone number listed below.

Following is a list of things that your child will need to secure for class and home practice:

  1. Violins/Violas will need a shoulder rest (Cadenza Violins on Youree Drive) – I will let your child know what size he/she needs to purchase. These can be any style.  If you do not purchase one at this time, your child may use a sponge (1 –2” thick).
  2. Cello/Bass – a rock stop (Cadenza violins on Youree Drive) – any style
  3. Rosin (Cadenza violins) – any style

There will also be a $20.00 orchestra fee.

Grading:

20 participation points per day

Announced playing tests

Mandatory evening concerts (200 each concert – usually Christmas and spring)

District Orchestra Festival (500 points- during school day)

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
