Welcome to the Orlando Homeschool String Orchestra! This is an exciting program designed for students with outstanding citizenship and a desire to participate in musical excellence in a group setting. Hard work and positive attitudes will be required for this endeavor.

Music is an expression, a way of working, sharing and understanding ourselves and others. We are all human beings with hopes, fears, and emotions. Our greatest success will require us to work together demonstrating patience, tolerance, and acceptance of one another.

Lessons being offered on all the string instruments (violin, viola, cello, bass and piano) and voice. To contact the director for availability, please check the contact tab above.
