• Instrumental Beginners at TE Middle

     Students who want to join our instrumental ensembles but do not currently play an instrument have the opportunity to take beginner lessons. Beginners will learn the basics of their instrument with the goal of joining their respective ensemble when they are ready.

    Beginners meet for sectionals on the same day as their reflective ensemble (Monday - 5th Band, Wednesday - Strings, Thursday - 6th Band).

    We offer beginner lessons on the following instruments:

    Concert Band 

    • Woodwinds: flute, oboe, clarinet, saxophone, bassoon 
    • Brass: trumpet, French horn, trombone, baritone, tuba 
    • Percussion: this includes pitched and non-pitched percussion 

    Orchestral Strings 

    • Violin 
    • Viola 
    • Cello 
    • Bass 

    We do not offer beginner lessons on drum set, guitar, or piano.
