Edgeworth Elementary offers instrumental music lessons for band and orchestra in grades 4 and 5. Beginning Band or Orchestra is for students in either grade 4 or 5 who wish to start playing an instrument and 5th grade Band or Orchestra is for any student who has had at least one year of experience studying a musical instrument.
Percussion lessons begin in grade 5 and are by audition. This year we have a unique situation where we have four fourth grade students who have studied and continue to study violin and cello privately. They have formed the Quaker Valley Elementary String Quartet (QVEST Quartet).
Beginning Band (4th and 5th grader students) - meets once a week for a half hour lesson on like instruments and then they meet as a class (whole band) during activity period the day they have their lesson. 4th Grade Band Class begins in January after the 4 month trial period.
Orchestra (4th and 5th grade students) - meets once a week for a half hour lesson on like instruments. However, due to scheduling constraints, at this time, they have no whole group lesson during the school day.
