4th grade is the portal into MISD's orchestral program. Welcome - and we hope your student is excited about becoming a part of the orchestra!
During the 4th graders' music class focused on recorders, they will be introduced to classical music and the different instruments: violin, viola, cell and bass. They will have several opportunities to play with the instruments. During an assembly at their elementary school, they will hear the 7th-8th grade orchestra play.
The students will choose 2 different instruments and try them out. Under the guidance of Mrs. Miltun, they will register for 5th grade orchestra with the instrument of choice for the fall upon entering 5th grade.
