Band and Strings

Rockburn Elementary has 2 bands and 2 orchestras. These groups are taught by Margaret Twigg, the instrumental teacher. Students are able to join band in 4th grade and may continue in 5th grade. They have the option of playing flute, clarinet, bass clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, baritone or percussion. Orchestra starts in 3rd grade and they may continue to perform in 4th and 5th grade. Our orchestra consists of violin, viola, cello and bass.  It's important for children to make sure they learn an instrument in 3rd or 4th grade if they wish to perform in the band or orchestra in middle and/or high school.

Each year we perform at two concerts. We have a Winter Concert and a Spring Concert.  I hope that you plan to attend these concerts because we really enjoy showing our audience how well we perform!
