Welcome to Reynolds Elementary Orchestra!

Hello Musicians!

"There is no substitute for hard work" - Thomas A. Edison
Practicing is very important!

In order to succeed in orchestra, practicing your instrument at home is necessary. My philosophy about practicing is the more days you practice is more helpful than the amount of minutes. I would like my students to practice 4 times a week (or more if possible). They will have a practice sheet to fill out for each practice. As the student completes a practice sheet they will play me a  bench mark exam and will receive a belt (modeled after karate) on their bow. Who will be a Master Belt before leaving Reynolds?

Reynolds 3rd Grade and Beginner Students have lessons every Monday
Reynolds 4th and 5th Grade Orchestra Rehearsals are on Tuesdays.
Palmer Cello and Bass Lessons are on Wednesdays.
Durgee Cello and Bass Lessons are on Thursdays.
Baker Cello and Bass Lessons are on Fridays.
Van Buren Lessons are on Fridays.

*Remember Your Instruments!
