Our mission at Westminster School is to provide students with a classical education in all aspects of their studies. In line with this goal, the orchestra program at Westminster School begins in the third grade with instruction in violin, viola, and cello, with bass offered beginning in 5th grade. Depending on student interest, percussion and wind instruments may be added.
Orchestra students receive a weekly 30-minute lesson in a small group setting (2-3 students) with a professional instructor. Participants are grouped with others of similar experience for ensemble and orchestra training, and all students are brought together to perform in the annual music programs.
