Brush up on your musical skills.
Orchestra Workshop at Cibola High School is for beginning string students in grade four and above or for those wishing to brush up on their skills. The class is designed for students to progress at their individual speed and is divided into different levels in order for the students to be their most successful. The first level is for the beginner student. Students learn how to play and care for their instrument, as well as to read music. Level 2 and Level 3 continue to progress in further instruction and playing challenges. Orchestra Workshop students eventually graduate into String Ambassadors, Civic Light Orchestra, and/or Civic Orchestra.
