Mrs. Linda Johnson

Welcome to the best classes at Chipeta!  Not only can you learn to play a stringed instrument, but you can express yourself in a way that not everyone can.  Music is the best and orchestra is the best!  We will learn how to play as a group and individually, orchestra pieces and solos and ensemble pieces.  So many ways to play music!  Violin, viola, cello and string bass are the available instruments from which to choose.  Choose wisely based on what you like to hear the best, low sounds or high sounds.  

Our first major performance will be in December, but we will do other performances near the end of first quarter (known as "Show and Tells") as well as throughtout the year.  We also do a Spring Concert in May, Solo and Ensemble Contest near the end of 3rd quarter, and an All District Orchestra program every other year (that may change due to COVID restrictions).

I am looking forward to working with some of the most talented kids in Chipeta!!
