What is Orchestra?

Message from the director:

Welcome to Drew Middle School Orchestra! In this class, we explore playing technique, musical genres, music theory and much more. Orchestra takes focus, confidence, responsibility, and teamwork. These are all skills students will take with them long after completing the course. Music is a wonderful way to connect to the world around you and bring joy to the soul. Any student can join orchestra!

Students who participate in music have the lowest levels of current and lifelong use of alcohol, tobacco, and illicit drugs among any group in our society.
