In fourth grade you have a choice to play a couple different orchestra instruments including: Violin, Viola, Cello, and Upright Bass.
In fifth grade you can play an orchestra instrument, a band instrument, or both!
Band instruments are: Flute, Clarinet, Oboe, Bassoon, Trumpet, Trombone, Baritone, and Percussion.
A lot of students enjoy all the music at WES.
“Even though it’s hard to do both instruments (band and orchestra) it’s a lot of fun to be up on stage twice with my classmates,” said Luis Munoz, fifth grader.
Mr. Scinto is the band teacher; Ms. McDonnell is the orchestra teacher.
In fourth and fifth grade you are required to be in the chorus. Mrs. Fields is the chorus teacher and your music teacher. In chorus, the whole grade sings the songs Mrs. Fields gives you. You practice these songs in music class. When it gets closer to the concert, you will have whole grade practices with Mrs. Fields at I&E. The holiday concert is coming up December 21!
