Welcome to my online classroom for the EHS Orchestra! 

It is my pleasure to have you in the EHS Orchestra Program.  The Goddard school district offers string instruction from 5th grade through 12th grade. The program is a continuous one, and I am glad to see every one of you performing in the high school orchestra.  At this point, you and your family have invested a lot of time and energy into playing your instrument.  Great job!  The high school orchestra program will continue to challenge you and help you develop additional playing techniques and skills. 

I encourage each one of you to find time to practice daily the music we will be working on for concerts and competitions.  I will be challenging all of you to move outside your comfort zone and participate in solos and small ensembles.  This can be an exciting and rewards ng experience.  We will work hard, but we will also have a lot of fun.

As questions or problems arise, please contact me at the email address or phone number below.   Also, please take a moment to check the calendar and Orchestra Handbook for upcoming events or important information.  I hope that your experience with the orchestra is a successful one.

Sincerely,

Ms. Lawson, Director of Orchestras and NBCT
