Welcome to Orchestra at Nansemond River HS and John Yeates Middle School. Read here to find information about upcoming activities and events as well as other useful information such as listening links, practice information, lessons, and more. Orchestra Notes will be posted monthly and are especially helpful for students and parents in keeping up with your yearly activities.
Our teaching philosophy is based on the idea that all students, regardless of their age, grade in school, or previous skill level share a joy for music and will be able to develop an insight into their own playing and as learners. It is our role as teachers to share their joy and provide knowledge to allow the students to fulfill their own desire to be successful and to continue to grow, beyond the classroom, in an individual or group setting.
If you have any questions, please contact us through school phone or email. We look forward to working with all of you this year!
