7th Grade Orchestra

  • 7th Grade Orchestra meets every day all year as an Encore elective. This class is based on the Ohio Music Standards and focuses on extending playing techniques learned in 6th Grade Orchestra and progressing through intermediate string playing techniques such as tuning, shifting, syncopation, vibrato, spiccato, two-octave major and minor scales, complex time signatures, and musical style. Students perform a diverse selection of repertoire incorporating these intermediate skills. This group performs three to four required concerts each year. There is a pay to participate fee attached to this course.
