Designed for beginning to intermediate students, this fun “first orchestra” teaches valuable ensemble skills. Nothing brings private lessons to life like an outlet for making music with others!  Minimum 1 year of prior playing and note reading experience required.​






















This ensemble is perfect for motivated players looking for a challenge beyond the average school orchestra program.  

























This group is composed of exceptional young musicians tackling VERY challenging repertoire.  Students must exhibit mastery of 3 octave major and minor scales and have finished Suzuki Book 4 or the equivalent to apply to join this group. This is a fast paced performing ensemble where strong sight reading skills are expected.  Participation is by invitation or "sit in" audition only.  If you think you may meet the criteria to join this class, send a message with a short description of your experience level.  We will invite to to "sit in"  rehearsal audition.













​​

Here, adult students come together to make music with others in a positive, low pressure environment.  All ability levels welcome!
