    Welcome to Orchestra at North Junior High!

    In Orchestra, we learn the foundational elements of playing string instruments and performing individually and together in an ensemble.  We will play our instruments every day and students will be expected to come to class prepared and ready to play!  The core elements of the class include individualized instrument study, ensemble performance, music theory, history, composition, and analyzing music.  Specific units of study include knowledge of music, care and maintenance of our instruments, individual and group performances, and creating and responding to music.
