String Orchestra

COMMUNITY MUSIC SCHOOL


String Orchestra Student

This intermediate-level string ensemble emphasizes music reading skills, understanding of ensemble playing technique, and experience playing repertoire more advanced than String Ensemble repertoire. Members must have a thorough and accurate knowledge of first position and the ability to read music.  The median playing level is Suzuki Violin Book 4 and Suzuki Cello Book 3.  Seating is on a rotating basis.  The String Orchestra is a strong preparation for the Young People's Orchestras.
