Students in 8th Grade Strings will continue to develop a strong foundation for playing a traditional string orchestra instrument (violin, viola, cello, bass) in an ensemble setting. Special attention is given to developing more fluid note reading and aural skills, disciplinary literacy, proper posture, tone and intonation. Students at this level will read and perform music at the grade 2 ½-3 level. In addition to class repertoire students in 8th grade will learn solo literature appropriate for HS auditions.
