Mr. Mejias
Orchestra at Arbor

Welcome to 4th and 5th Grade Orchestra!

Societies and cultures from throughout history have always shared the concept of music. It creates entertainment, identity, and connections between many people.  By "musicking," we take part in activities surrounding music, whether it be performing, listening, composing, etc. and through it we garner a better appreciation for music and the arts as a whole.

Through orchestra, my goal is to teach students not only how to play an instrument but how to enjoy and appreciate music. They will learn skills such as critiquing, critical thinking, and team-building, all useful not only in the rehearsal space but throughout their lives. They will see the value in practicing, focusing, and learning, all needed in accomplishing goals and seeing their progress. But just as important, they will learn to have fun with their learning!

Our Orchestra Program pulls students out twice a week for a lesson and a rehearsal. Lessons are small groups of the same instruments that focuses on the individual improvement of a student. Rehearsals are large groups of different instruments that focus on working together to perform music.
