The beginner track offers the student their very first orchestra experience. Pieces are selected from contemporary composers whose goal is to strengthen the instrumentalist in the basics of musicianship. Seating is determined through an audition video sent in prior to camp. The audition pieces are selected from the music sent to the student in June. As a beginner member, their level of playing should fall between Hunter’s Chorus and Suzuki Book 3. This is primarily a morning track with classes starting at 8am and finishing up around 12:30pm.
The courses available provide a good balance between the physical (the actual playing of their instrument) and the mental (understanding rhythms, note values, and why it makes sense). With the understanding that the LORD formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, thereby man became a living soul, a chapel time comprised of hymn singing and preaching from the Scriptures is built into the schedule to minister to their spiritual nature and needs.
