    This course develops skills on the violin, viola, cello, and bass by learning advanced techniques (shifting, vibrato, etc.) and performing in school, district, and community concerts. Students are also exposed to music history and music theory in a practical approach to the orchestra repertoire. The 7th and 8th-grade orchestras are for students who have already received 2-3 years of instruction. By signing up for Orchestra, the student and parents are making a commitment to be in the program for the entire school year.
