Beginner Orchestra

This is a program that offers free instrument lessons to students in 4th and 5th grades.  In beginner orchestra students learn the basics of their instrument in weekly group lessons and are prepared for entry into the Middle School Orchestra.  Lessons take place during the regular school day and are taught by LAMS’ music teacher, Mr. Frank Dodd.

Middle School Orchestra

Students in grades 6-8 who have previously studied an orchestral instrument are eligible to join the middle school orchestra.  This orchestra rehearses twice per week and gives several performances throughout the year.
