The ITJ Elementary Orchestra project was born 6 years ago to turn the curricular music class into a learning experience that allows 3rd and 4th grade students to experience music from an entirely different perspective. Students acquire the skill of playing an instrument or using their voice as one and at the end of the year there is a concert to share what they learned with family and friends. This experience favors the development of self-regulation skills and the ability to following instructions. It is an extraordinary exercise in tolerance, respect and recognition of the importance of teamwork.
