Wester Adult Beginning Orchestra
Wester Middle School is starting a Beginning Adult Orchestra this school year. This is a wonderful opportunity for parents, faculty, and staff who are interested in learning a string instrument. The ensemble will meet on Tuesday evenings from 6:30 - 7:15 PM at Wester Middle School. The class is free, but participants will need to provide their own instrument and supplies. If you are interested in participating, please fill out the form below. Link to Form: https://forms.gle/p2urbStnbw5gRqAP7
Please contact Ms. Pardis Salehi firstname.lastname@example.org (Wester Director of Orchestras) if you have any additional questions.
We are so excited to see so many of you coming in regularly to practice either before or after school! With your busy schedule, it's easy to come in for 20-30 minutes right before or after school to get in your daily practice! Students who need a practice space can always come practice in the orchestra room!
To get one-on-one support and feedback please make sure to sign up for tutorials moving forward. We want to make sure you are getting the time with a Director that you need! If you need practice support or need to replay a pass-off, please sign up for a tutorial time by clicking the Orchestra Tutorial Link here and it can always be found in the Titan Orchestra Resources. This will allow us to make sure we are available when you have time.
When you come in for a tutorial you should:
- Warm up on a scale appropriate for your passoff
- Review the comments and rubric found in Canvas
- Practice those skills
- Wait for a director to work with you
