    The 2018-19 school year will be my 12th year teaching Orchestra at Cummings High School and Broadview Middle School.  At Cummings we offer four levels of orchestra; Beginning, Intermediate, Proficient, and Advanced.  The Proficient and Advanced levels carry Honors credit.  Orchestra is primarily for students who have prior experience at the elementary or middle school level or a strong musical background such as private lessons or experience in chorus or band.  Students who do not have this prior experience need to speak to Mrs. Smith before enrolling in the class.  Instruction offered for violin, viola, cello, and string bass.  Orchestra meets during 2nd block and involves 2-4 required concerts per year.  It does not conflict with participation in after-school activities. There are some after school orchestra activities that are optional and usually happen on Wednesdays.
