In-School Programs

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]OrchKids believes in equitable access to music education and exposing children to music at a young age. With this in mind, OrchKids implements an inclusion-based model during school hours, serving students as young as pre-kindergarten in a variety of ways. In-School program offerings are listed below. 


Students are introduced to the fundamentals of music through group musicianship classes. Using techniques developed by Dalcroze (Eurythmics), Kodaly (Solfege), Gordon, and Orff, students are exposed to age-appropriate games and activities that invite them to discover musical concepts in a fun, participatory manner. A special emphasis is put on encouraging students to discover their unique voice, and in creating and expressing original musical ideas. 


Students learn about the different instrument families (strings, woodwinds, and brass) by learning to play the violin, trumpet, and recorder. Through the hands-on exploration of these instruments, students are able to discover their own personal preferences and proficiencies. 


Choir is an excellent way for students to explore and perform a variety of genres and connect to thematic studies at their school. Students learn group compositional skills and work together to develop a greater sense of teamwork and community. Choir can be geared for any student and is a great way to combine multiple grades into a collaborative group. 

Instrumental Group Lessons

Group lessons help students develop the technique and skills needed to be successful in an ensemble setting. 

Band and Orchestra:

An instrumental ensemble allows a large group of students to play through diverse repertoire in multiple genres. Additionally, students have the opportunity to take on a leadership role and engage in peer-to-peer mentoring.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_single_image image=”4211″ img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
