This is the second year of Orchestra. The class is for students who took Beginning Orchestra the previous year or for students that have taken private lessons and shown the teacher that they can perform at a higher level level. Intermediate Orchestra students continue to build new skills and abilities on their instruments including learning to tune instruments on their own, begin to learn the skill of vibrato, techniques such as tremolos and trills, as well as play music at a higher level.
It is the expectation of the students in Intermediate Orchestra to practice 15 minutes or more per day, and to be able to sight read music in the key of D Major and G Major showing the appropriate technique and understanding of each key.
Students participate in a variety of required concerts and trips throughout the school year.
