Learning to play an instrument is highly valued at Churchfields Junior School. For children who have played an instrument for more than one year they are invited to join our orchestra. Instruments in the orchestra include flute, oboe, clarinet, violin, viola, cello, baritone, French horn, trombone, cornet and trumpet. Young musicians who play in an orchestra absorb essential lessons about patience and perseverance. Orchestra members have to work together to make music. Children learn to wait to play their instrument at the proper time, learn to adjust to fit their movements and sounds with those of others.
