Summer Orchestra – GRADES 3 through 8

High School Sign Up

For the young ones, ages 8 through 10

If you are able to play in Suzuki Book 2 or above, you can sign up. If I get enough in this category, we may have a separate orchestra just for your age group. I already have a few signed up, so don’t worry about being the only young one in the Jr. High orchestra. If you are not sure, set up a time to come see me to play something =)

For beginners, ages 4 through 10

There will be weekly group violin lessons to sign up for on Tuesdays or Thursdays, later in the day. Send me a note, if interested. Same weeks and concert schedule.

Parents with younger children, assume the earlier timeslot for now. I may move you to earlier or later in the day, if there are enough of you that can/want to be a part of the summer orchestra program.

Makeup rehearsal times may be available to those that need to miss rehearsals. Violin students are encouraged to take private lessons, especially if you want a solo. I will be offering a discount for those new to my studio that sign up for orchestra.

Summer camp is not just for kids. Adults can take part in many of the ones listed here. There are some for jazz, fiddle, and orchestra camps. Some are more focused on music than others. Below are links to a few that I recommend. If you have any questions about the ones listed here, don’t hesitate to ask. Add more if you know of some that have been fun. They don’t all have to be about music. Early Spring is usually the cut off date for some of the more aggressive ones.
