artists express through music

The orchestra program at Lake Zurich Middle School North offers students an opportunity for personal growth and enrichment through the study of orchestral music literature, string performance, and music history. The curriculum will emphasize proper performance technique, study of music literature and history, and the exploration of musical expression through performance, composition, and improvisation. Students explore technology in music through amplification, effects processing, recording, and much more.

  • students work to refine tone, phrasing, intonation, rhythm, articulation, dynamics, balance, and blend

  • students collaborate with peers towards a common goal

  • students have a unique experience in music, unlike any other subject taught in school, music educates feeling
