INFORMATION FOR NEW STUDENTS

Welcome to Kinard Middle School's Orchestra Program!

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and to thank you for choosing Kinard Core Knowledge as your Middle School! Here at Kinard we are very proud of our Music program and we value Music as one of the Core Subjects taught at our school. All students entering 6th grade at Kinard will participate in either Choir, Band, or Orchestra for the full year. This page is designed to give students planning to attend Kinard next year more information about the Orchestra program. Please do not hesitate to contact me, Mrs. Griffey, if you have any further questions about the Orchestra program. I look forward to meeting you soon!

 - Mrs. Leanne M. Griffey, Orchestra Director

Placement Nights!

 All incoming sixth grade students are welcome to join us at one of our Placement Nights where they will have the opportunity to try all four of the Orchestra string instruments! Students will be led through a guided experience by local private music instructors as well as listen to a short demonstration of each instrument and have an opportunity to ask questions. 

At the end of the evening, students will have a "score card" to turn in to Mrs. Griffey to indicate their instrument preference.

More information will be sent home in March. 

NO SIGN-UP REQUIRED for ORCHESTRA PLACEMENT NIGHTS!

Confirmation

May 2020

Once each student's instrument preferences have been received after Placement Nights, Mrs. Griffey will begin to assess instrumentation balance for the incoming class and then send confirmation emails to every student. This email will also contain much more information about Summer Music, instrument rental, supply lists, and more.

July - August, 2020

Exact dates TBD

Once you have received your confirmation email, you should register for PSD's Summer Music program!
