Our orchestra program is a source of pride for the school. Students learn to play violin, viola, cello and bass. Instruction begins 4th grade and continues in 5th grade.
Orchestra is a commitment at Patrick Henry. Once a student has signed up for orchestra, we expect them to continue for the remainder of their time at Patrick Henry. Learning to play a stringed instrument can be difficult and challenging. We do not want students to quit at the first sign of difficulty, rather we want to encourage students to persevere, and to work hard to become their best. Students who stick with it will have fun and learn the skills necessary to excel in middle school and beyond.
