The 7th grade orchestra program looks to advance the technical and musical skills of the string students. Music from the Classical repertoire and popular styles are covered. Special emphasis is on solidifying reading skills. The class focuses particularly on dotted rhythms and syncopated rhythms. Students are encouraged to audition and participate in the Intermediate All-County Orchestras and to have evaluations of their playing at the NYSSMA festivals. Orchestra music is more advanced and students are expected to learn their parts at home. Students are expected to come for sectionals 2 periods per quarter. Every student is required to have Strictly Strings Volumes 1 & 2 for use at home and in class.
