Sixth Grade Orchestra Program
Objective: To teach each member of the class the beginning essential techniques necessary to play their respective stringed instruments well. Daily practice will assist each student to succeed. For beginning string players, 20-30 minutes 5-6 days per week is recommended.
Instrument: Violins, violas, cellos and String Basses can be rented through Summerhays Music (Orem) (801) 226-1760, Bert Murdock Music (Orem) (801) 225-7922, Mountain Rock Music (Springville) (801)489-3000, Bill Harris Music (Provo) (801) 374-1440, Charles Liu (Midvale) (801) 255-9636 or Boothe Brothers Music (Spanish Fork) (801)798-7650. Currently the district is very low on inventory so unless you’ve already talked to me about rentals, you will need to look elsewhere.
Keep your eye on KSL.com Online Classifieds or Craigslist as well. There are dozens of instruments being sold all the time, sometimes for the same price or less than a school rental. I am always on the lookout for good deals and can help you find them.
Parent/Student Meeting: A parent/student meeting will take place at 8:30 am on Friday, September 15, 2017. At least one parent should attend.
Other Purchases and Fees: Every student needs a copy of Method Book: Measures of Success, Book 1 for their chosen instrument. There is a one time tuition fee of $75 for the year.
Classes are every Monday, Wednesday and every other Friday. 8 am SHARP. The first day of class will be Monday September 18th. That week we will have a Friday class. The following week we will only have class on Monday and Wednesday. Please bring your Method Book and Instrument EVERY REHEARSAL.
