Middle School orchestra is a wonderful time to work on tonality, playing in tune, and playing musically. At least in my opinion, starting those concepts early on can only be beneficial. Great pieces to do that are always folk tunes, or something familiar that the kids are in to and ambitious towards. As soon a students hear creative tunes from Appalachia or the west, they’re immediately intrigued and have a blast playing it. Sweet we have them passionate towards the material! It’s not that difficult, the students are connecting, ow we can challenge them further to really get those chords in tune and to really focus in on that crescendo and make the most of it possible. Hope this helps!
