2018/19 5th & 6th Grade Music Program

& Supply Lists

 

Our new building expansion, with additional rehearsal and instructional time, is allowing The Ambrose School to return to a full symphonic orchestra.  Students may once again be assigned a strings or winds instrument.

 

5th Grade Music

Reminder! Students begin their study of orchestral instruments during the spring of 5th grade. During the fall, students will submit their 1st, 2nd and 3rd choice of instruments and will be placed in the strings or winds sectional beginning January of 2019.

6th Grade Music

During the fall, students will participate in choral curricula once a week and instrumental curricula twice a week until Christmas. After Christmas, the curricula will be instrumental only.  ALL sixth grade students should expect to continue on with their instrument from last year.

 

For NEW 6th grade students, please contact Julia Kapsoff @ jkapsoff@theambroseschool.org or 208-860-8226 to determine instrument choice.
