Intermediate Orchestra - These are students who have played their instrument for one year, mostly 5th graders. Intermediate Orchestra students have a pull-out lesson once a week at their elementary schools and a rehearsal at the middle school after school on Thursdays from 3:45-4:45 PM.

Concert (6th grade) Orchestra - Most of the 6th grade orchestra students have played for two years. These students have a pull-out lesson once a week at the middle school, and rehearse during 8th period TAP on A days.

Symphony (7th and 8th grade) Orchestra - Most of the 7th and 8th grade orchestra students have played for 3+ years. These students have a pull-out lesson once a week, and rehearse during 7th period TAP on B days.

String Ensemble - A select group of Symphony Orchestra students who rehearse during lesson time. Membership in this group is determined by audition results.

For more information about any of these groups, please click on their name in the left column of this page.
PRIVATE LESSONS
Private lessons are a great way for students to receive individualized instruction on their instruments. A private lesson teacher can provide extra help in areas where students struggle, and challenge students with more difficult music and technique for their specific instrument. Private lessons are not required for participation in any District 33 Orchestra, but are highly encouraged. Please ask Mrs. Sikma for a list of local teachers if you are interested in taking your performance to the next level!
