4th Grade

  •   Banner: Welcome to 4th Grade Orchestra!

    Learning to play an instrument is a wonderful opportunity for students to develop discipline, commitment, responsibility and teamwork skills, as well as learning more about music. It is an enjoyable activity that helps to develop self-confidence, and an expressive outlet that students can carry on through their lives. The Orchestra program begins in 4th grade and continues throughout middle school and high school.

    The Orchestra Handbook linked on this page includes detailed information about orchestra and how to get started. Families will also find forms and documents; and weekly updates of what our students are learning througout the year.  

    Please feel free to reach out to Ms. Forbes or Ms. Fulcher with any questions. We look forward to welcoming you to 4th Grade Orchestra!
