Hand out this straight-forward PDF to your new string players (violin, viola, cello, bass) in your orchestra even before you start rehearsing to help get them pumped up about their new adventure as an orchestral player! I am using this handout for my elementary beginner orchestra, that has over 90 players it in. I will give this to them at our first small lesson together, and then when complete it and return it to me, I will hang it outside of the Orchestra Room for all of the other classes to see! Students like to have an identity, and to give our new players an identity of "violinist, violist, cellist, or bassist" is extra special and makes them even more excited to begin their journey! It is also good for students to think about what they will have to do this year to be successful at their instrument.
This PDF has a page for each type of bowed string player, so you can hand it out accordingly. Students will really like seeing their new membership to the orchestra displayed around the halls and will feel proud to be a part of the orchestra community.
Parent-Teacher Night: This is great to have hanging outside the orchestra room before Back to School Night, too!
