Third Grade Orchestra

music notes and violins

Beginning in the fall, each student in 3rd grade at both Woodland and Country School will have the opportunity to join string orchestra.  In addition to learning music, students will gain high self-esteem, learn self-discipline, problem solving, goal-setting, and the importance of teamwork; all skills needed in life beyond elementary school.  We highly encourage all students to take advantage of this incredible opportunity.

String orchestra students will meet for one half-hour class within the school day, as well as one after-school rehearsal each week.   Below are the designated rehearsal days for your planning purposes.  We look forward to welcoming many of you to our Weston music community

In- School String Classes:

  • Woodland School: Tuesday
  • Country School:  Friday

After-School Rehearsals

  • Country School: Wednesdays from 2:20  p.m. – 3:15 p.m.
  • Woodland School:  Thursdays from 2:20  p.m. – 3:15 p.m.

In order to participate in orchestra, your child will need to rent an instrument.  You will be able to rent an instrument from Johnson Strings that night if you wish.  I will be measuring all students in their first class for appropriate sizing.

If you have any questions regarding your child’s participation in Orchestra, please feel free to contact Mrs. MacDonald.  We look forward to a fantastic year ahead!

Thank you,

Colleen MacDonald
