Instrument Selection for Incoming 6th Graders

Hello future orchestra parents and students! We are so excited that you’re interested in learning to play an instrument in orchestra next year at Killian. We can’t wait to meet you!

There are 4 instruments you can choose to play: violin, viola, cello, and bass. Don’t let the size of the instrument deter you from what you choose. They all come in sizes to fit YOU! Whatever you want to play, we can teach you how to be an awesome musician.

There are two ways to make your instrument selection for next year. The first option is on Saturday, March 26 from 9:00am – 12:00pm in the KMS orchestra room. Students will be able to try all four string instruments and choose one they like best.  Please click the link below to sign up for a 15 minute block to come and try out our instruments.

If you have previous experience playing a string instrument, please contact Mrs. John ( for audition information to advance into a higher level orchestra.
