All orchestra classes are held once a week and meet in the auditorium. Orchestra is open to 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students. We have approximately 60 instruments at the school and have selected orchestra students from each of these grade levels.
The Arts Education Branch of LAUSD has sent us Mr. Gown. Originally from Seattle, WA, Mr. Gown has studied music in New York, Israel and Brazil and has performed with groups internationally. He has been living in Los Angeles for only a year and half and makes his home in Sherman Oaks. He loves soccer and is thrilled to be at Sherman Oaks Elementary Charter. He is committed to doing his best to keep up with our talented students!
The goal in orchestra, is to cultivate the joy of learning, creating music together to make beautiful and soulful music, and to share with the community .
