6th Grade Orchestra

  • 6th Grade Orchestra is the first and only opportunity to begin an orchestra instrument at Princeton. Sixth Grade Orchestra meets every day all year as an Encore elective. Students may become a member of this orchestra by participating in the annual Try-It Night Recruitment held in the spring of their fifth grade year, or by contacting the director for information. The course curriculum is based on the Ohio Music Standards and includes string techniques such as: instrument playing position (posture and bow grip), music reading and notation, pizzicato, detache, staccato and slurred bow strokes, rhythm counting, key signatures up to two sharps, accidentals, fourth finger patterns, and tuning. This group performs three to four required concerts each year. There is a pay to participate fee attached to this course.
