Tilden/Perry Elementary

  • Welcome to the elementary string orchestra webpage!

     Students who are interested in beginning a string instrument (violin, viola, cello, or bass) should check out my beginning orchestra page for more information.

    Tilden and Perry students who already have started instruments will begin lessons soon after school begins. Look for a master schedule and student reminder slip so you know when to come down for your lesson.

    Advanced Orchestra will begin in September as well.


    PMEA District 10 Elementary Band and Orchestra festival:

    5th graders are eligible to be nominated by Mrs. Dowd to participate in the PMEA District 10 Elementary Orchestra Festival. This festival usually happens in late April or early May.
