Orchestra at Taft is where students learn how to play a string instrument. Sixth grade orchestra students also have the opportunity to participate in the all-city solo/ensemble festival and metropolitan honor orchestra festival. Students with previous string instrument skills may audition to be in the chamber orchestra.
Every student in orchestra has an opportunity to grow whether or not they know how to read or play. Each instrument is important as it supports the entire ensemble. Lessons are a chance for students to receive one on one time with the teacher to either help them understand content further or to expand on their abilities.
