The First Note

The Parkview High School Orchestra program consists of four performance orchestras under the direction of Mr. Scott Hague, Ed.S.

These dedicated and talented young musicians in grades 9 through 12 perform at various school and community events throughout the school year.  All performances are open to the public and we would love to see you there!

Be sure to “Like” the Parkview HS Orchestra on Facebook to access videos from past performances and find the very latest information on our concerts.

Director’s Notes

Welcome to the 2019-20 school year! Our orchestra program continues to grow and promote musical excellence in the Parkview community and beyond. Continuing research shows that the study of music can improve personal discipline, motivation, and cognitive function in other academic areas. It’s fun and looks great on college applications as a long-term extracurricular activity.

Parents, WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please fill out the PHS Orchestra Parent Survey 2019-2020 if you have time, skills, donations, or anything you can contribute. Your help is greatly appreciated!

If you work for a company or corporation that would like to advertise or make a contribution, please contact our Booster Club at pobc.inc@gmail.com.

Thank you for encouraging your child to be a part of the Parkview High School Orchestra.

Teach In Harmony

Philosophy

The members of the Parkview High School Orchestra have elected to be in this ensemble. By choosing to participate in orchestra, each student makes the commitment to demonstrate behavior, attitude, and skills that contribute to the continued excellence of the group, as well as his/her own personal musical growth. Students entering the high school orchestra program should already use correct playing posture, appropriate and courteous rehearsal behavior, and consistent practice habits. Students are expected to continue these established practices and put forth their best effort each day, because they have made a commitment to the development of the group and themselves.

Expectation

Through rehearsals, performances and competitions, students can expect to:

  1. Increase development of individual playing skills,
  2. Learn the discipline and concentration involved in the study and performance of music,
  3. Become a contributing member of a large, cooperative group and share in that group’s achievements,
  4. Become better learners and students in all subjects, and
  5. Develop a lifelong appreciation of music.

Right Equipment

Students should bring the following equipment to class daily: Instrument and bow, case must have a name tag attached, Rosin, a soft cloth, all assigned music, pencil, and shoulder rest/rock stop

Right Attitude

  • Focus, Patience, Enthusiasm, and a Sense of Humor.
  • Courtesy and Respect towards the Director, students, and everyone else.
  • Because mature concert etiquette is part of our AKS, good etiquette is part of the grade.
  • Approach the instrument in a serious manner – it is a tool for musical expression, not a toy!
  • Remember that everything you do affects everyone else.
  • Abide by the guidelines as set forth in the Parkview High School Student Handbook and the Parkview Orchestra Handbook.
  • NO COMPLAINING, NO EXCUSES
