The orchestra program strives to teach more than music, training leaders and motivating students to achieve personal success in all aspects of life. Learning to play an instrument and belonging to the school orchestra is a wonderful opportunity! Students learn self-discipline, group cooperation, problem solving, goal setting, self expression, memory skills, concentration, poise, enhanced physical coordination, high self-esteem, and the importance of team work – skills in great demand for almost every aspect of life.
