Welcome to the LWSD Plateau Region Orchestra Program!
We are comprised of orchestra students in grades 4-12 that go to school in the Eastlake Learning Community. Our primary purpose is to provide future and current string players with the knowledge and experiences to be successful musicians. To us, success does not mean becoming a professional level musician. Instead, it means that our students will learn to play their instrument to the best of their ability and gain an understanding and enjoyment of participating in a music program.
Our elementary program begins in the fourth grade with an introduction to the stringed instrument of their choice – violin, viola, cello, or string bass. Classes are 2-3 times per week before school at Eastlake. Bus transportation is available. Students in 5th grade may also join orchestra at the beginning level. For those students in the 4th or 5th grade with at least one year of string instruction, we have an intermediate level elementary group that meets twice per week, also at Eastlake before school. The elementary schools in our area include Blackwell, Carson, McAuliffe, Mead, and Smith.
The Inglewood Middle School Orchestra classes meet during the day at Inglewood in room 201. Orchestra 1 is for students in grade 6 who wish to play in a string orchestra. While most of the students will have at least one year of experience, this is also a class for the beginning string player to learn an instrument. Orchestra 2 is for students in grades 7-8 with a minimum of one year playing a stringed instrument. The Renaissance School of Arts and Reasoning does not currently have a music program. For more information about Inglewood Middle School registration, see the IMS Orchestra page.
The Eastlake/STEM HS Orchestra meets period 7 in the EHS band room – B161. Class times are M-F from 6:30-7:20 a.m. This class is primarily for students in the 9th-12th grades who would like to learn more advanced skills in a string/full orchestra setting. There may be an opportunity for STEM students to join for credit - we will post more information is it is available. For more information about Eastlake High registration, see the Sr High Orchestra page.
Our goal is to make communication and scheduling much easier for all of us. If you would like more information, please click on one of the links or e-mail email@example.com. We’re looking forward to a great year of music and fun!
