6th Grade Guide for Instrumentalists

Attend Outside Performances

Attend six concerts outside of your school this academic year. For example, two concerts at the high school you will attend, two concerts on a college or university campus, and two concerts by professional organizations like your city’s symphony, community concert band, or touring ensemble(s).


Following the holiday break, begin private lessons once every two weeks with a more seasoned player. This can simply be playing class required material with a high school player.


Participate in statewide Solo and Ensemble Festival by performing an accompanied solo that is appropriate to your technical ability.


Attend Summer Camp (Band or Orchestra) that has age appropriate performance repertoire. Check out our grade-by-grade summer experience guide for details.
