Hello ! Welcome to Mr. Wada's
ORCHESTRA Class 2020-21!
Dear Grade 4, 8-12 Orchestra Musicians and Families,
All string lessons will be provided online.
#1 Talk to your guidance counselors and register for your grade level orchestra/string lesson. (Grades 4, 8-12)
#2 You will be invited to Teams (Grade 4 String Lessons 2020-21 or OHS Orchestra 2020-21)
#3 Students (guardians) will sign-up for online private lessons....probably from a signup app (TBD).
The links below are introductory videos to the violin, viola, cello, and the online lesson. I usually visit 3rd graders with the HS Orchestra students but the visit was cancelled last year. I hope these videos help your students understand what they are going to study. Other than school programs, the string lessons often begin with private lessons (one-on-one). Last spring, my students and I learned that online lessons can sometimes be challenging. Despite that being so, my students persevered and improved greatly throughout the remainder of the school year. I hope my new 4th-grade students will enjoy learning a new instrument this year. I cut the video into 2 parts.
