Orchestra

Mozart: 1st-3rd Grade Orchestra
The Mozart level beginner string orchestra is for 1st-3rd graders who have never played a string instrument before as well as students who have 1-2 years of experience. If your student is just beginning or wants to learn how to play a string instrument, the Mozart level is perfect for your child. There will be a combination of beginner pedagogy instruction and repertoire that will culminate in an end of the year performance. Students will be trained using Bornoff pedagogy and pre-Suzuki and Suzuki book 1 repertoire. By the end of the year, the students will begin to explore level 1 orchestra repertoire. Mozart students are highly encouraged to take private string lessons although it is not a requirement. Students will have several performing opportunities throughout the year both as a Mozart orchestra and with the other Trinity orchestras. Class will meet Thursdays, 2:30-3:15.

Haydn: 4th-6th Grade Orchestra
The Haydn level beginner string orchestra is for 4th-6th graders who have never played a string instrument before as well as students who have 1-2 years of experience. Since the Haydn level consists of older students, the pacing of this class is faster than the Mozart beginner orchestra. We will immediately start in Suzuki book 1 repertoire and be playing level 2 orchestral repertoire by the end of the year as well as diving into beginner theory and music history. Students will have several performing opportunities throughout the year both as a Haydn orchestra and with the other Trinity orchestras. Class will meet Mondays, 2:30pm-3:15pm. 5th and 6th grade string students who have a minimum of 1 year of playing experience may audition to be a part of the Copland: 7th-8th grade orchestra, which meets on Wednesdays from 3:15-4:00pm. Contact sblanton@trinityacademy.com to schedule an audition.

Copland: 7th-8th Grade Orchestra

Group Guitar

This course is designed to teach guitar to students at the beginning to intermediate levels to play in an ensemble. The student will be able to read conventional notation in first and second positions. Intermediate students will be expected to expand their knowledge of the fretboard in order to play through fifth position.

Supplemental individual instruction is limited. Students are urged to seek individual instruction independent of the class. Instructor approval is required of students that are not currently studying with a teacher. Each student will be expected to provide his or her own instrument.
