21-22 6th Grade Strings Resources!

  • Welcome to 6th Grade Strings!

     

    For Violin/Viola players: Students will bring their instrument to and from school each A day. There are instrument racks in the strings classroom where they can store their instrument in the morning when they arrive at school. I do ask that they bring these instruments home at the end of the day in order to leave these racks available for students who have strings on B days. 

    For Cello players: The school will provide cello players with an instrument to use during class so that the students do not have to transport these large instruments to and from school on a regular basis. This instrument will likely be shared by several students throughout the school day. Some or all cello students may be asked to use their personal instruments for the two concerts and four after school rehearsals this year depending on school instrument demands when all 6th grade classes are combined. 
     
    For Bass players: The school will provide bass players with an instrument to use during class so that the students do not have to transport these large instruments to and from school on a regular basis. This instrument will likely be shared by several students throughout the school day.
     
    BEMS has a limited number of violins, violas, and cellos to rent out to students for an annual fee. These instruments are first offered to families who express financial need, and then the remaining instruments will be available to all families on a first come, first served basis. Students will not need to bring instruments to class for the first two weeks of school to give families time to gather materials.
