Orchestra

What is orchestra?

Cullman Homeschool Orchestra is an ensemble offered to any homeschool students between the ages of 8-18 years old. Orchestra teaches students how to play band/orchestral instruments and focuses on classical and contemporary band and orchestra music.

We offer two different levels, Junior and Senior Orchestra. Junior Orchestra is available for beginners to learn the basics of their chosen instrument and music reading, and students may test out of it into the Senior Orchestra when they are ready. Ideally, beginner students would remain in the Junior Orchestra for no more than one year.

Orchestra is a year-round ensemble, although you may take the summer off. We just ask that you let us know at least a month in advance if you plan to take summer break!

 

How do you register?

Registration for new students happens from May – June every year. To register your student, make plans to attend our Orchestra Registration event in June where students will be allowed to try out the instruments, mingle with current students, and parents can handle the paperwork!

How do you get your instruments?

We are currently in the process of becoming a Veritas instrument distributor, so you will be able to rent or purchase your instruments directly from us! However, we will also assist you in choosing the instruments that are best suited for your child, even if you choose to not purchase through Seed-Harvest Music Academy.
