Middle School Orchestra
Orchestra instruction begins in sixth grade in Broken Arrow at all five middle schools. Students have the opportunity to begin with Summer Strings Academy the summer prior to their sixth grade year if they wish, or wait till school begins in the fall. Students may choose between the violin, viola, cello or the string bass.
Seventh grade orchestra students continue to improve on the basics and move into more intermediate musical techniques.
In eighth grade students challenge themselves with more advanced techniques.
