Who will become a Legendary Llama?
Beginner orchestra has started on their orchestra karate journey and a few students have already earned their White Belts!
Orchestra karate gives students the chance to challenge themselves and move at their own pace to pass varying skills and techniques on their instruments.
Later in the year, we will form a group called the 'Legendary Llamas' which is a group of beginner students who have excelled at their belts and are ready to play extra, and more challenging music.
The Llama Masters are 7th and 8th graders that are available for beginner students to sign-up with for peer tutoring on anything they need. We encourage the 6th grade students to sign up and come to orchestra legend time to gain some new orchestra friends, mentors, and knowledge
