FYCO Orchestra Preparatory Group (Strings)

The FYCO Orchestra Preparatory Group is open to complete beginners and those who have not played very long. This string group will take students through the first three levels of the All 4 Strings Books, and culminate with a concert at the end of their season. There is no audition required to participate. 

Level 3 graduates will have learned to play simple pieces on their instrument, have experienced ensemble playing and will be ready to join the FYCO Advanced Orchestra.

This group includes violins, violas, ‘cellos and upright bass. Students will be expected to own or rent their own instruments and purchase the All 4 Strings books as needed. Additionally, all students will be required to start regular private lessons on their instruments to continue participating in the group, no later than three months into the season.

NOTE: Preparatory group registration will close directly after auditions for the Advanced group are done. While there is no audition required for the Preparatory Group, the Level 3 requirements above must be met in order for students to reach the goal of being able to perform with the advanced group.  

Weekly rehearsals will run parallel to the FYCO schedule (TBD).
