Welcome to my online classroom for the EMS Orchestra!
It is my pleasure to have you in the EMS Orchestra Program. The Goddard school district offers string instruction from 5th grade through 12th grade. The program is a continuous one and I am glad to see every one of you performing in the middle school orchestra. At this point, you and your family have invested a lot of time and energy into playing your instrument. Great job! The middle school orchestra program will continue to challenge you and help you develop additional playing techniques and skills.
I challenge to you do your very best in this class by making a contribution in every rehearsal. There will be plenty of performance opportunities to develop and enhance your playing skills either as a soloist or a member of a small ensemble. Dedication and committment is what drives this orchestra program, so every member will be expected to accept and meet these daily responsibilities.
Should problems arise or if you have questions, please contact me at the email address or phone number below. Also please take a moment to check the calendar and Orchestra Handbook for upcoming events or important information. Every member of this orchestra is important and I will do my very best to ensure your success.
