"It is great trying out all the instruments here! I tried four instruments so far and I like the cello best!" exclaims Hala Alnounou, a WHMS student. All 4th grade students in Bloomfield Hills Schools were invited to attend the Band and Orchestra Instrument Selection Night. They received guidance from music faculty and local experts to decide which string, brass, or wind instrument instrument they will play in 5th grade.
Will Clark, a EHMS student, chose to play the clarinet. "I thought about the viola and the violin too, but I learned tonight that the clarinet is the best for me. I like the sound!"
Students receive music education beginning in Kindergarten, participate in band or orchestra in 5th grade, and can take part in choir in 6th grade.
