Coffeen After School Orchestra

 


There are two groups that meet in addition to the school block classes. The Wire Choir is a 4th and 5th grade orchestra and the Golden Strings is a 2nd and 3rd grade violin ensemble. The goal of the After School Orchestra program is to give interested students an additional opportunity to play challenging music in a large performing group.

Requirements to participate in after school orchestra:

  1. Students must have their own instrument (ex: rental instrument) because at home practice is required.
  2. Students should have at least one year experience; however some students may be ready sooner.  (If you are unsure if your student is ready feel free to contact me and I can help guide your decision).
  3. Students must have a ride home at 4:15.
  4. Students may not miss more than 3 practices.
    *Coming to practice without an instrument counts as a missed practice.
  5. Students must play in all performances.
