At Home Practice

Every Orchestra student should practice at least 2 hours (120 minutes) per week. For the best results, this can be broken down into 20 minutes, six days per week.

Private Lessons

All students who are willing and able should seek private instruction for their instrument.  Much like piano lessons or guitar lessons, your child will receive individual attention and instruction to further their playing ability.  They will be able to compete for auditions such as allstate or GYSO with a greater chance of success and provide high level musical leadership to the DMS orchestra.  Please click Here for a list of qualified private instructors.
