Overview

Students in grades 5-10 learn to work cooperatively through chamber music concepts.

Dal Segno is a musical term that means “the sign” and indicates a return to an earlier place in the music. It’s pronounced Dahl SAYN-yo.

flute students in grades 6-10 who meet playing requirements are also welcome in Advanced session!
